We will discuss basic concepts in genetics/epigenetics and the role these molecular modifications play in behavior and disorder. We will evaluate empirical papers and learn the molecular techniques described within them. We will interrogate the genome databases and learn about how to identify and isolate differences in human DNA sequence. Completion of this course should result in increased knowledge of the use of genome level data in psychology and biology.
