NSCI 0420 - Neurogenetics
*Neurogenetics* In this course we will examine how genetic analysis can be used to probe the structure and function of nervous systems. Instead of focusing broadly across many fields in neuroscience, as a class we will select a few topics and delve deeply into understanding the controversies and technological advances associated with a particular topic in neurogenetics. We will examine the strengths and limitations of different types of genetic analyses as they are applied to studying neurobiology such as gene knock-outs, CRISPR genome editing, RNA interference, genetic mutant screens, and genome-wide association studies. Class time will primarily be spent discussing the primary literature. A final project will consist of research grant proposal similar to one that would be submitted to the National Institutes of Health or National Science Foundation by a professional scientist.
