Advanced Microbial Genetics

The purpose of this course is to enable beginning graduate students to read and understand the literature on genetic and molecular biology of bacteria and lower eukaryotes. The course will utilize both standard lecture format as well as group discussion of primary literature. It will cover basic topics of genetic analysis, emphasizing methodology as well as important discoveries. While the course will address all major topics of importance, it will focus particularly on those that most likely to be utilized by students in their research or on areas which are of particularly broad biological importance. Approximately 2/3 of the course will focus on prokaryotic systems with the remainder devoted to lower eukaryotes. 3 cr/fall.
