About this Unit
This unit follows on from Biology for Psychology (101187) and provides a thorough grounding in genetics. The unit is presented in three modules. The first module reviews Mendelian genetics and extensions of Mendelian genetics. The second module is concerned with the structure and function of DNA and mRNA. The basic processes of genetic control of metabolism via the transcription and translation of genetic information are discussed. The final module involves a thorough analysis of human population genetics. Recent advances in somatic and germ-line genetic engineering are reviewed along with their ethical implications.
