CHEM 001 - (NS) Atoms, Molecules and GenesSemester Hours: 3
Historically important developments which have contributed to modern understanding of the hereditary apparatus and molecular mechanisms in living systems are examined. While the interrelationships between chemistry and biology which contributed to these developments are considered, the subject matter is principally chemical in nature. Emphasis on studying the processes by which scientific understanding evolves. Philosophical/ethical questions raised by current advances (as in genetic engineering) are discussed.
