BIOL375. Genetics (3)

Genetic concepts at advanced undergraduate level; genetic transmission, recombination, gene action, mutation, population and evolutionary genetics. A-F only. Pre: 275 or consent.

BIOL375L. Genetics Laboratory (2)

(1 4-hr Lab) Experiments with a variety of organisms to illustrate principles discussed in BIOL 375. Pre: 275/275L, 375 (or concurrent) or consent.

BIOL395. Internship in Biology Teaching (2)

Supervised laboratory internship in the preparation and demonstration of laboratory experiments in selected laboratory courses. Repeatable one time. Pre: consent.

BIOL171L + BIOL499. SEA-PHAGES I: Phage Discovery (2 total)

This is the first part of a two-semester, discovery-based, undergraduate research course. In the first semester, students will isolate and characterize new viruses from local soil samples. In both semesters, students will be required to take an introductory Biology lab and an independent research course. Visit UHM SEA-PHAGES for more information or to apply.

BIOL172L + BIOL499. SEA-PHAGES II: Bioinformatics (2 total)

This is the second part of a two-semester, discovery-based, undergraduate research course. In the second semester, students will annotate the complete genome of their new viruses and conduct independent bioinformatic research projects based on their virus genomes. In both semesters, students will be required to take an introductory Biology lab and an independent research course. Visit UHM SEA-PHAGES for more information or to apply.

TPSS615. Quantitative Genomics and Evolution (3)

Overview and lab-based course exploring theory and methods to understand genome evolution and adaptation; focus will be on a range of organisms. Pre: 453 and 603, or consent. (Cross-listed as PEPS 665; offered as ZOOL719 during Fall 2019)
