Laboratory in Yeast Genetics

This laboratory-intensive, inquiry-based course focuses on techniques in genetics, with an emphasis on using yeast as a eukaryotic model organism. Course emphasizes experimental design, techniques, data gathering, data analysis, and technical skills to effectively communicate science through writing and presentation. Techniques may include: culturing microorganisms, DNA/RNA isolation, quantitative PCR (qPCR), CRISPR, transgene construction, microscopy, and/or assays to observe protein-protein/DNA- protein/RNA-protein interactions. Topics may include: phenotypic analysis, analysis of gene expression, molecular cloning, and genetic screens. Meets the Critical Perspectives: Scientific Investigation of the Natural World lab or field requirement. (Not offered 2021-22).
