BIOE 4420 - Biomedical Applications of Gene Regulation and Editing

3 Credits (3 Contact Hours)
This course provides an overview of the basis of genes, the process of how the genetic code gives rise to proteins and is regulated in eukaryotic cells and genetic mutations. It also covers delivery methods and cutting-edge molecular tools for altering protein expression, manipulating the genome, design, analysis and their applications. The applications of gene editing for making model organisms for biomedical studies, gene therapy for inherited and acquired diseases and control of vector borne diseases are explored. The final portion of the course addresses the ethical and biosafety considerations of gene editing. Preq: BCHM 3010  or BCHM 3050 .

This 4000-level course has a 6000-level counterpart. Students should refer to the Graduate Catalog for the 6000-level description and requirements.
