BIOCH 260 - CANCER MOLECULAR GENETICS AND APPLICATIONS

[3 Credits]
This upper level course examines the types of genetic alterations that contribute to cancer development and discusses some of the underlying biochemical principals that result from these genetic alterations. By the end of the course, students should understand that various genotoxic stresses and subsequent genetic alterations can induce cancer development as well as promote in tumor progression. Further, students should be familiar with different approaches to identify candidate genes for cancer development and tumor progression. The class will involve two, two-hour lectures per week. It is offered jointly with the Dept of Genetics as GENET 245. Prerequisite: INTER 111 and 121, 122, 123 and 124.
