Description

Class Experience

After taking Introduction to Genetics, learners will be able to:
-Describe the processes and functions of mitosis and meiosis in transmitting DNA to daughter
cells.
-Define the terms Chromosome, Chromatid, Centromere, Gene.
-Apply the principles of Mendelian inheritance.
-Distinguish between allelic and non-allelic interactions and give examples.
-Analyze human pedigree charts and identify the mode of inheritance.
-Describe normal chromosome number and structure in human cells, and understand the cause and effect of alterations in chromosome number and/or structure.
 I have a doctorate in Parasite Genetics from McGill University, Canada. I am a  former researcher  and have published several papers on the genetics of drug resistance and  disease susceptibility.  I  have taught genetics and  other topics in biology in university.
There will be voluntary homework assignments.
I will not give a grade for this class, unless specifically requested by the learner or parent.
1 hour 40 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
