Overview of Course Content

Focus on human genetic conditions
– Single gene defects
– Complex defects (multigene & multi factorial)
– Cytogenetic defects

An end goal will be how to relate:
– Phenotype (e.g., coronary heart disease)
– Sequence (e.g., entire string of AGCT available)
Introductory Questions




Chromosomes: how many in humans? how many homologous
pairs? how many autosomal? how many sex?
Genes: relationship between gene and allele? How many alleles
per gene in single individual? What is a haplotype?
Genotype to phenotype: dominance? co-dominance? what is
relationship between “dominant” and “wildtype”? what are
polymorphisms?
– Human gene nomenclature & designation by mutant
phenotype (e.g., the “CF gene”)
Molecular genetics: what are Southern, northern and western
blots? what are RFLPs, microsatellites and SNPs and how are
they used? what is PCR? what are microarrays?
Mendel’s Laws



Segregation of determinants into
gametes
Random assortment of determinants for
different traits
Founded in mechanisms of MEIOSIS
