Genetics and molecular biology continue to fascinate me and I hope to heighten student interest and curiosity in those fields. The completion of the human genome project represents both a major milestone and stepping stone leading to a detailed understanding of the complexity of the human body. Not featured in everyday headlines are genome projects of microbes, plants, worms, fish, and other mammals. These projects will give biologists, in all fields, the ability to probe into the molecular basis of the unique features of the living world around us. Course work in genetics and molecular biology will help prepare tomorrow’s biologists for an exciting period of genome exploration.
