General Genetics B - GNE2602
Under Graduate Degree Semester module NQF level: 6 Credits: 12
Module presented in English
Co-requisite: GNE2601
Purpose: This module will provide participants with further knowledge in genetics. Students participating in this module will be able to demonstrate understanding of how changes in DNA can affect cellular functions and outline the principles of quantitative, population and evolutionary genetics. They will also be able to explain how genetics practices are useful in diagnosing disease and abnormalities.
Cytogenetics - GNE2603

Module presented in English,Afrikaans
Co-requisite: GNE2602
Purpose: This module will provide students with information on the study of chromosomes and their role in the genetic continuity of life.
Genetics (Practical) II - GNE2604
Under Graduate Degree Year module NQF level: 6 Credits: 12
Module presented in English,Afrikaans
Co-requisite: GNE2601 & GNE2602
Purpose: This module forms part of the BSc degree in in Life Sciences with Genetics and Zoology (Or botany, Microbiology, physiology or biochemistry) qualification streams. On completion of this module students will have been exposed to a range of laboratory equipment such as basic measurement devices to more advanced instruments such as thermocyclers and flow cytometers. They will personally be able to follow a laboratory protocol and analyse the data that is obtained from such a protocol. Students will also be able to describe laboratory techniques used in recombinant DNA experiments.
