SAS 70A Genetic Engineering in Medicine, Agriculture and Law

Winter Quarter 2011

This is a distance-learning (real-time video conferencing) class with UCLA and Tuskegee University

The course provides non-biology (particularly non-science) majors and entering biology students with a foundation in molecular biology, genetics and genomics as it applies to genetic engineering and to address the social, legal, and ethical issues that arise from emerging new genetic technologies in medicine, agriculture, and law. A major goal of this class is to put genetic engineering into a scientific, historic, and social perspective so that students can make objective decisions about how this technology should be used in the future. This is a highly interactive, team-oriented, problem-based, course that teaches students how to think critically about experimental science and the societal issues raised by advances in genetic engineering, genomics, and human reproduction. The course is organized into three parts: (1) an interactive, media-oriented lecture section that includes hands-on "experiments" and demonstrations, (2) films and guest- speakers that bring real-life societal issues into the classroom, and (3) a separate undergraduate seminar that focuses on Scientific American articles and is taught by teaching assistants. The course will be offered in a distance learning format with a class on the same topic at UCLA and Tuskegee University. Thus, students will have the opportunity to interact with students and a professor at other campuses.

-Class Meetings: Tuesdays and Thursdays, 3:30 - 6:00 pm, 5 units, CRN 40380

-A separate 2 unit undergraduate seminar will be scheduled at a time convenient for all students (PLB 98, CRN 37152)

-Students earn general education credits for Science and Engineering and/or Social Sciences.
