Genetic’s Three C’s:

Cells, Chromosomes, and Cancer

What makes your eyes brown? How are you related to your parents? To your pet dog? Why are some cells more powerful than others? These questions are just a few that can be answered by researching genetics, the study of hereditary information. This course is for the serious science lover. By examining the principles of genetic information, you’ll get a glimpse at how the molecular world affects the macroscopic world. Expect to discuss controversial topics such as prenatal testing and cancer diagnosis. Activities will include DNA extractions, visualization of chromosomes from human cells, and participation in a real clinical genetics laboratory.
