Genes and Disease (1005MSC)

In this course students will explore the biological processes on which the continuity of life is based. These include cellular reproduction, in which the information carried in cells is passed on from cell to cell and organism to organism, and basic genetics which focuses on the storage, replication and transmission of such information and how it influences variation in living organisms. Procedures used to investigate biology and genetics at this level, and the strategy of taking advantage of biological processes clinically and commercially will be investigated. The course then introduces the theme of evolution, discussing historic milestones and developments, evidence for evolution and how evolutionary processes impact populations. Students will participate in case studies and laboratory activities designed to enhance their understanding of the course material, providing a challenging opportunity to develop the practical and intellectual skills required of a scientist and/or health care worker. Prerequisite: 1014MSC Cells, Tissues and Regulation Assumed Knowledge: Maths B and One of Biology, Chemistry or Physics (4SA)
