Aimee Eldridge

Laboratory Instructor

Teaching this semester

BIOL 2112. Genetics and Molecular Biology, L1

Integrated coverage of organismic and molecular levels of genetic systems. Topics include modes of inheritance, the structure and function of chromosomes, the mechanisms and control of gene expression, recombination, mutagenesis, techniques of molecular biology, and human genetic variation. Laboratory sessions are scheduled.

Aimee holds a Ph.D in Biochemistry from the University of Oregon and is currently a laboratory instructor at Bowdoin.
