Preview the online course: Fundamentals of Genetics: The Genetics You Need to Know (XGEN101)
More info:

This course provides a stair-step introduction of genetics from the basic concepts to exploring more complex topics, including molecular biology, gene mapping and screening, and reverse and forward genetic research. You will explore both what is known about genes as well as how we use genetics research to better understand basic biology. This course will create the solid foundation needed to be successful in the subsequent courses within the program.

You will learn:

-The structure and function of genes, chromosomes and genomes
- How traits get passed down through generations
-The fundamentals of molecular biology
-The use of genetic methods to analyze protein function, gene regulation and inherited disease
-Existing and emerging model organisms of genetic research

This course contributes to the Stanford Genetics and Genomics certificate program (
