This course focuses on Mendelian and Population Genetics. Starting with an overview of meiosis, to connect the inheritance of traits to DNA and chromosomes, the first third of the course will focus on Mendelian patterns of inheritance in detail, including pedigree analysis. The remainder of the course will cover Population Genetics, expanding on the concepts from Mendelian Genetics through use of the Hardy-Weinberg Theorem to model the evolution of populations.
