This course could be called “It’s In Your Genes” for it aims to improve your understanding of the importance and role of DNA in today’s society. After covering some basics of DNA and learning how it works, we will investigate topics such as genetic diseases and cancer, genetically modifi ed foods, and DNA genealogy.
