Semester 1, 2018


10 pages

2,700 words



Comprehensive and complete subject notes on the genetics & genetic disorders component of BIOL1008. Sourced from lecture slides, lab notes, and additional research.

Notes are organised in a clear order for ease of information absorption and revision. While ensuring everything is covered, I have tried to contain the information to as little pages as possible and divide it into short sub-topics, so revision feels achievable and less overwhelming (also makes last minute cramming a little easier!!)

Sub-topics covered:
- Overview of cells, DNA & genes
- Chromosomes & aneuploidies
- Mutation & genetic disease
- Trinucleotide repeat disorders
- Sex-linked inheritance
- Chromosomal rearrangements & cancer
