About this Unit
The unit is designed to introduce genetics so that even if you haven’t studied it before you will develop an understanding that will inform your practice in work. The context of this unit is forensic science but rather than jump straight into forensic DNA analysis this is a foundation unit, designed to give a framework of human molecular genetics. We will also look at some of the important issues in genetics including genome mapping and the role of gene dysfunction in disease. The first module is an overview and it is very important that you use the assignment time to check out some websites that will be very useful later on. This unit is taught by the University of Florida as part of a collaborative venture between the University of Florida and Western Sydney University. Note: Further information on this unit is available from the University of Florida.
