Human Biology
Michelle French

Human Bio Lecture 01 - 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 it's 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 -Forward genetics: From phenotype to genotype. -Reverse genetics: From genotype to phenotype. - French teaches first half of the course, the first half is designed to follow molecular biology weve followed (BIO240) - There will be stuff we already learned but stuff we havent will also be taught, this will link to the classical genetics all the way up to population genetics - This is why course is set up this way, we have molecular knowledge already and then we learn about early knowledge of genetics and these things - Look at genes and go to phenotype which is what organism looks like - Phenotype: Appearance of an organism. - Professor Campbell will look at phenotype of an organism and know what the genotype must be which is backwards from what Michelle teaches - French is the course coordinator - Tutor is a grad student in molec bio - They are senior grad students actually so ask them about their research and apparently theyre all very smart - Tutorial questions are all laid out already we can do them all already - There will be the discussion board so you can go there and ask questions, answer questions of students - Put the subject, lecture number, slide and topic to help students look for relevant subjects - They no longer look at biome- Lecture handouts are on the website, they are guided notes where you need to add more notes onto those notes, there are no fill ins - You still need to write things down - They are meant to complement the textbook and best if you read them in advance - They highlight what are important - They want us to take notes from the textbookor at least read it - You must get the textbook - The solution manual is great so do as many as possible, selected problems will be assigned and solution manual will explain it - Readings will be from textbook as well and there are online animations as well - Lectures and textbooks are free for examination - Detailed course outline contain stuff for this - Start reading now, approx 30 pages
