BIOL 3011: Genetics (Gotesman): Unit 7: DNA Mutation Analysis

Genetics: BIOL 3011

Topics for Unit 7: DNA Mutation Analysis

Lecture 14: Mechanism of mutation, complementation analysis

Lecture 15: Impact of DNA Mutations

 

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

  1. Demonstrate ability to analyze data presented in tabular and graphic format
  2. Demonstrate ability to order biochemical intermediates into a biochemical pathway and determine the effect of mutations on the progression of the pathway
  3. Demonstrate ability to determine how many genes are involved in a pathway
  4. Demonstrate understanding of the concept of complementation analysis and solve complementation problems
