Medical Science 6091 H(3-2T)2
The flow of genetic information from DNA to final protein product. The subject will be covered in two courses offered in alternating years: gene structure and regulation of transcription, including gene structure and organization, chromatin structure, regulation of transcription and post-translational processing; and the activity of genes during development including stored messenger ribonucleoprotein particles and translational control in gametes, the switch from maternal to zygote genome control of development in early embryos and the molecular basis of morphogenesis and differentiation.
609.01. Gene Structure and Regulation of Transcription
609.02. Genes and Development
Medical Science 537 (Biochemistry 537) or equivalent.
Note:6 Credit for both Medical Science 609.02 and 751.14 will not be allowed.

3Cross-Listed Courses: e.g.
Medical Science 609 (Biochemistry 609)
Courses which are listed under two Departments and which can be taken for credit from either Department, but not both. The credit is determined by the student's registration.
4Prerequisite: Must be completed before registering in this class.
5Corequisite: Must be completed at the same time as this class.
6Notes:/Antirequisites: Certain courses carry the notation "Not open to students with credit in course number XXX" or "Credit for both course number XXX and course number XXX will not be allowed." Students may take these courses if they wish, but credit for both courses will not be granted towards their degree.
7May Be Repeated for Credit
Some courses are decimalized in order to accommodate different topics of study e.g. 609.01, 609.02. If this notation is present, students are allowed to take multiple topics belonging to one course number.
8Not Included in GPA
A course with this notation is graded as CR (Completed Requirements) or F (Fail). The course is not included in the calculation of the grade point average.
