"This course got me through my molecular genetics module at university! I knew next to nothing about molecular genetics, however after 6 weeks using Lecturio I've gone from 20% in the practice tests at university to 70–80%. Each topic is subcategorised, easy to follow, and Dr. Cornwall delivers the otherwise difficult-to-understand material in a clear and concise manner.”

FAQs

Genetics is the branch of biology that studies genes, genetic variation, and heredity in organisms. It explores how traits are passed from parents to offspring through genes, the units of heredity made up of DNA. Genetics plays a vital role in understanding how diseases are inherited and helps in the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of genetic disorders. It encompasses various subfields, including molecular genetics, population genetics, and clinical genetics, each focusing on different aspects of gene structure, function, and transmission.

Population genetics is a subfield of genetics that studies the genetic composition of populations and how it changes over time. It focuses on the frequency and distribution of alleles (gene variants) within a population, and the factors that influence these such as mutation, migration, genetic drift, natural selection, and recombination.
Genetic disorders are diseases that are caused by abnormalities in an individual’s genome. These abnormalities can be as small as a single-base mutation in just one gene or involve the addition or subtraction of entire chromosomes.

Gregor Mendel is considered the father of genetics. He was an Austrian monk who conducted experiments on pea plants in the mid-19th century. Mendel’s work on inheritance patterns laid the groundwork for the understanding of genetic principles, including the concepts of dominant and recessive alleles, segregation, and independent assortment.

The central dogma of molecular biology or genetics describes the flow of genetic information within a biological system and provides a foundational understanding of how genetic information is stored, transferred, and realized in living organisms. It consists of the 3 main processes:

  1. Replication
  2. Transcription
  3. Translation

A test cross in genetics is a way to determine whether an individual possessing a dominant phenotype has a homozygous dominant (two dominant alleles) or heterozygous dominant (one dominant and one recessive allele) genotype. For example, in pea plants, purple color is dominant and white color is recessive. If a pea plant has purple flowers, it could have the homozygous dominant genotype (its offspring with a white-flowered plant will have purple flowers only) or the heterozygous genotype (the flower may have about half/half purple and white offspring with a white-flowered plant).

In genetics, a trait refers to any specific characteristic or feature of an organism that can be observed or measured. Traits can be physical, such as eye color or height, or they can be behavioral, such as a bird’s nesting pattern.

Reasons why some medical students would call genetics a hard class include: 

  • Complex topics like gene expression and molecular genetics that can be challenging if you lack a solid foundation in biology
  • Rapid developments in the field making information outdated more quickly
  • Diversity of topics may be overwhelming to some
  • If you are used to a more clinical curriculum, the more theoretical courses like genetics may be more challenging.
