Interesting Summer N&M Class: The Genetic Science of CSI


* Meets GenEd N&M Natural Science and COLL (CASE) N&M

* 1st 6 Week Summer Session

* Only three days per week:  MTW 10:20A-12:15P


Need N&M Credit? Obsessed with CSI? Want to know the science behind the forensic genetics on these popular shows? Where are you leaving your DNA? What can I tell about you from your DNA (skin color, hair color, eye color, height, disease, ancestry…)? How likely is it that your DNA will falsely implicate you in a crime? Will your next speeding citation include being swabbed for a genetic sample? Is OJ guilty? Who is buried in the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier? Is there really tiger bone in that love potion? Was that sushi you just ate really tuna? These and many other questions will be addressed in this course.
