Genetics Learning Goals


1. Analyze phenotypic data and deduce patterns of inheritance from family histories.  

2. Describe the molecular anatomy of genes and genomes.  

3. Describe the mechanisms by which an organism’s genome is passed on to the next generation.  

4. Describe the phenomenon of linkage and how it affects assortment of alleles during meiosis.  

5. Extract information about genes, alleles, and gene functions by analyzing the progeny from genetic crosses.  

6. Describe the processes that can affect the frequency of phenotypes in a population over time.  

7. Compare different types of mutations and describe how each can affect genes and the corresponding mRNAs and proteins.  

8 Apply the results of molecular genetic studies in model organisms to understanding aspects of human genetics and genetic diseases.  

9. Interpret results from molecular analyses to determine the inheritance patterns and identities of human genes that can mutate to cause disease.
