Leerdoelen When finishing the course, the student can:
1. Describe the structure of chromosomes
2. Describe the meiosis and explain how abnormalities occur in chromosome
numbers;
3. Recognise different inheritance patterns by reference to pedigrees or
phenotype frequencies;
4. Solve genetic issues using the Genetic Genetic Resource Center;
5. Determine the genomic distance between genes ("linkage-map") using
recombination frequences
6. Explain mechanisms of genome evolution
7. Use the Hardy-Weinberg equation to calculate genotype frequencies within a
population and explain what factors the genotype frequencies in a population
may deviate from the Hardy-Weinberg ratio;
8. Describe various techniques to investigate the expression and function of
genes;
9. Explain how biotechnology contributes to the development and production of
new medicines, including gene therapy;
10. To explain the relationship between genetic variation and drug response
differences.
