|Grade, Semester||Year 2 1st semest [Department of Biosciences, Faculty of Science and Engineering]|
|Elective, Credits||Elective 2credit|
The purpose of this course is to learn the following.
(1) The structures of DNA and RNA
(2) Replication of DNA
(3) Gene expression and its regulation
This course aims to understand the molecular mechanisms by which the genome is maintained and the genes are expressed or regulated.
Final grade will be calculated according to the midterm examination (33%) and the final examination (67%). To pass, students must earn at least 60 points out of 100.
|Textbook||Text book for biology in a university. Vol. 2 Molecular genetics (in Japanese)||David Sadave et al.||Kodansha Ltd., ISBN:978-4-06-257673-4|
Students have to prepare each lecture by reading the corresponding chapter in the textbook and summarizing the content of next lecture in a notebook. This preparation will take one hour.
There will be homework each week. Students should review the questions they did not understand in their homework. This review will take two hours.
Students should take "Fundemental genetics". Please review the contents of "Fundemental genetics". Handout will be posted on LMS.
