This subject will examine the broad field of genetics. It will cover standard Mendelian genetics, our modern understanding of molecular genetics, and the central dogma (DNA is transcribed to mRNA which is translated to protein). Modern disciplines of applied molecular technology (including proteomics and genomics), the genetic basis of molecular diseases, epigenetics and the genetics of cancer will also be examined.
