Here are the grades
for Winter Quarter, 2012 Genetics according to UC designated "M"
The textbook is An Introduction to Genetic Analysis by
Griffith, Wessler, Lewontin and Caroll, 9th Edition (2008)
Here are directories for files associated with this course:
LECTURE NOTES: A directory of
selected lecture notes. Note that I frequently update my
notes prior to the lecture. Be sure to take detailed notes
during lecture in your own hand to facilitate learning.
You can then compare your notes with these in the lecture directory.
LABORATORY PROTOCOL PAGES: here is
a directory of Genetics Lab Handouts in pdf format.
Here is a table of
historic contributions to the science of genetics with
links to related images.

Here is a page of pictures I took while on a sabbatical "pilgrimage" to Mendel's Monestary in Brno, Czeck Republic in Fall of 2006.
We took a field
trip to the cytogenetics lab of Dr. Ruth Blough at
Children's Hospital on 27 Feb 2003. Thanks to Rachel for
instigating this excellent learning experience for the class.
Here is a great YouTube animation on transcription and translation (thanks Mary Ellen)
Here is a YouTube clip on charging of the tRNA and translation.
Here is a*.gif
file that portrays bacteriophage life cycle.
Here are a set of YouTube videos on PCR:
This one is good except for the typo...
Another good explanation of the process of PCR:
then look at this one which *explains* nothing, but the animation is good:
