Courses: Developmental Genetics (BIOLH358G01)
This course will examine the structure of sex chromosomes, and how differences in sex chromosome constitution give rise to the familiar morphological differences between males and females. The emphasis will be on the genetic and molecular basis of sex determination, using the primary research literature. Model organisms will include invertebrates such as Caenorhabditis elegans and Drosophila melanogaster and vertebrates such as placental and non-placental mammals and reptiles.
