Course outcomes:

a. Knowledge and Understanding:

1- Explore the system of classification of plants bacteria and fungi..
2- Familiarize the students with the general characteristics of microorganisms.
3- Describe the general characteristics of viruses and the different methods of infection and multiplication.
4- Introduce students to the fundamentals of molecular genetics.
5- Explore the DNA structure and replication.
6- Understand the different concepts of plant genetics.
7- Be able to discuss the molecular aspects of chromosome and gene structure, how genes are replicated, expressed and regulated.
8- Appreciate the nature of interactions between genes and the influence of gene interaction on inheritance patterns.
9- Prepare students for heredity diseases in advanced levels.

b. Intellectual Skills:

1- Use the library and internet resources to develop independent study skills through assignments.
2- Distinguish between organic and genetically modified organisms through case studies and debates
3- Prepare and distinguish Gram +ve and Gram –ve bacteria.
4- Identify different fungi microscopically
5- Virus detection by haemagglutination tests

c. Professional and Practical Skills:

1- Identify cell structure of the plant.
2- Begin to develop lab skills in DNA isolation from plant
3- Distinguish the microbial pathogens
4- Develop an informed interest in matters of scientific importance and recognize the usefulness, and limitations, of the advances in genetics research.
5- Conduct experiments and be able to write a report

d. General and Transferable Skills:

1- Apply the genetics study in other medicinal disciplines and be stimulated for studies related to the course beyond this introductory level.
2- Apply the study of systematics (bacteria, fungi and viruses) to identify the pathogenic forms.
3- Be able to understand the different pathogens causing infection and hence know what is infection control strategies in clinics and hospitals.
