In the last half century, our knowledge of life has been revolutionised by the finding that DNA is the molecule that carries the genetic information that determines the characteristics of any organism. This course will introduce students to the history of the discovery of the chemical structure of DNA, the structure itself, its role in the transmission of genetic information, and how it is used in activities such as forensic examination of crime scenes. Students will undertake a number of written activities to familiarise themselves with the molecule. No knowledge of chemistry is assumed.
