Course Synopsis

Genetics course to BS students will be taught by using: 1. Powerpoint presentations. 2.Links. 3. Reference books Topics for assignments will be given and will be evaluated by presentations.

Course Learning Outcomes

The continuity of the life from one generation to other generation is based on the mechanisms involving nucleus, chromosomes and genes etc. The process of continuity not only transfers the traits of the parents but also imparts variations that render the generations sustainable in changing environment. These concepts will be imparted to the students in this course.
