Courses: Senior Research Tutorial in Genetics and Meiosis (BIOLH402B01)
The principles and mechanisms by which the chromosome number is reduced and segregated during the production of gametes are studied in the nematode Caenorhabditis elegans. Genetic, molecular, and microscopic methods are used to isolate and examine mutant strains which fail to execute meiosis properly. Laboratory work is supplemented by readings from the current literature on meiosis and C. elegans.
