This course will provide a background in basic genetics from DNA to RNA to proteins. The goal is to give students the tools to understand genes, genetic predispositions and gene editing. Dramatic advances in gene editing technology will ultimately allow editing of any gene in any organism including humans, unleashing the power to alter the course of evolution. This course should provide the background necessary to enter into the deep social and ethical issues that need to be understood and discussed by the global society.
