Links to Course Competencies

This RWLO could be applied in the following courses: biological chemistry (freshman), molecular genetics, biological sciences, and others. Specifically, this RWLO meets the following course competencies:

  • increase knowledge of the principles of the molecular theory of genes and the relationship of DNA to RNA to Proteins;
  • define terms used in molecular genetics; and
  • apply and understand connections to phenomena in other disciplines.


Other Course Competencies:

  • Educational Technology: Use content-specific tools, i.e. word processors (specialized cut/paste, and properties of word documents) and the Internet to support learning and research.


  • Educational Technology: Use technology in the development of strategies for solving problems in the real world, especially in the areas of genetics and molecular biology.  This site is used by biological researchers throughout the world on a daily basis.
