Topics will include fate mapping and lineage analysis, forward genetic approaches, the production and use of genetic mosaics, reverse genetics, conditional mutagenesis strategies, and in vivo imaging technologies. Discussions will focus on the merits and limitations of experimental techniques across various animal model systems. A basic understanding of embryonic development is assumed.

The format of this course will be journal club style presentations by students of selected research papers, followed by a general discussion. Student grades will be based on presentations (50%), participation in discussion (50%).

With the exception of Biochemistry students, students from other departments must be registered in MMG1012H in order to take topics through the Department of Molecular Genetics. Biochemistry students should confirm with their Graduate Office to ensure our topics can count towards their module courses.
Students should choose multiple topics in order to ensure that they are able to register for topics this Fall. Indicate the priority of this course in relation to your other choices
