Advanced-level discussions of selected topics in prokaryotic and eukaryotic molecular biology.  Emphasis is placed on original research papers and extensive reading together with critical thinking is required.  Topics include the genetic code, mutagenesis, chromosome and chromatin structures, mechanisms of DNA replication, recombination, repair, and transposition, gene structure and function and mechanisms of gene regulation.  Examples from bacteriophage, bacteria, lower and higher eukaryotes will be used to illustrate these different areas of molecular biology.
