Prerequisites: BIOL GU 4001 or BIOL GR 6001 Permission of the instructor. This course will be suitable for students who want to engage in deep reading of papers in genetics and development. At the beginning of the course, classic and contemporary papers that complement the literature and topics covered in the graduate core course required of Biological Sciences graduate students will be discussed; later in the course, students will choose papers that suit their interests and the mission of the course, i.e. that include sophisticated genetic analysis using classic or contemporary methods. Student-selected papers may be in the area of developmental biology or any biological problem for which genetic approaches are used, including topics in microbiology.
