Courses: Perspectives in Biology: Genetic Roil and the Royal Families (BIOLH125D01)

Fall 2008

Family pedigrees reveal the inherited nature of a variety of human conditions and provide a powerful way to identify individual genes and to study the molecular consequences of mutation, particularly through the development of specific diseases, such as hemophilia and porphyria. The Royal Families of Europe offer well-documented family histories in which frequent intermarriages provide unparalleled and often tragic glimpses into both the genetic and molecular basis of disease and other aspects of the human condition. One half semester. Enrollment limited to 30.

Prerequisites: Lottery "B" preference: 5 spaces to Class of '12, current Freshmen.
