Tuesday, January 6, 2009 Human Bio Lecture 1 - This is needed to help us with third and fourth year courses - Even if you never take genetics again in the future in detail, we need these concepts for some other life science courses - It provides knowledge for the future because genetics will become a critical aspect of your life - Even if you dont stay in science you will probably be at some point in your life where you need to make a genetic decision - We will learn about gene therapy as well - We will talk about tools geneticists use to examine genetics - Because its impossible to do all types of experiments on humans because you cant tell 2 people to mate today and such, we cant do that so we use model organisms - We use them to illustrate genetic points - When possible well talk about human genetics as well - You need to have successfully completed BIO240, if you failed and once we know your marks, you will be kicked out and you can take it during the summer or take a BIO250 - If you have questions ask her - Develop good understanding of genetics through all kinds of ways, tutorials, lectures, assignments etc - Learn the scientific terminology, understand fundamental concepts etc - You must know the material and go beyond, apply the knowledge you learn but background goals are to enthuse us, delve into the knowledge, give us enthusiasm and ultimately try to inspire some scientists in the group
