Biology Concentration for Major Program

 

Human Genetics

The courses recommended for students interested in Human Genetics are designed to offer a broad perspective in this rapidly-advancing area of biology. Genetics is covered at different levels of organization (gene, genome, chromosome, cell, organism and population), using pertinent examples from all species, but with special emphasis on humans.
