BIOL 3011: Genetics (Gotesman): Unit 1: Cellular Replication

Genetics: BIOL 3011

Topics for Unit 1: Cellular Replication

Lecture 1: Review of Cell theory, Genetic Information, Mitosis

Lecture 2: Review of Meiosis, crossing over, independent assortment.

At the end of this unit you should be able to:

  1. Demonstrate knowledge and understanding, conceptually and pictorially, the process of mitosis and meiosis.
  2. Demonstrate knowledge of the differences and similarities between mitosis and meiosis.
  3. Demonstrate knowledge and understanding of the connections between mitosis and meiosis and Mendelian principles.
  4. Demonstrate ability to draw and label the processes of mitosis and meiosis with cells having different diploid numbers.
