BME 7806 - Biomedical Applications of Genetic Engineering

Provides biomedical engineers with a grounding in molecular biology and a working knowledge of recombinant DNA technology, thus establishing a basis for the evaluation and application of genetic engineering in whole animal systems. Beginning with the basic principles of genetics, this course examines the use of molecular methods to study gene expression and its critical role in health and disease. Topics include DNA replication, transcription, translation, recombinant DNA methodology, methods for analyzing gene expression (including microarray and genechip analysis), methods for creating genetically-engineered mice, and methods for accomplishing gene therapy by direct in vivo gene transfer. Prerequisite: BIOM 603, undergraduate-level cell and/or molecular biology course. (e.g., BIOM 304) or instructor permission. Suggested preparation: biochemistry, cell biology, genetics, and physiology.
