Comment: This was the first semester this class was offered, and it was amazing. The combination of professors alone made coming to lecture worth while. One professor would lecture, and the other two would often sit in and make comments, often stirring up interesting discussion right in class. It's basically a class on what new research in genetics the professors are excited about. I highly recommend this class if you enjoy learning about what genetic research is going on in the scientific community.

Comment: He is not a very clear professor. His lectures are confusing to follow, but he is very helpful and approachable which goes a long way to overcoming this. His exams are very fair and very easy if you study what he tells you to. However, I think many students were confused about what would be on the final and may have studied material less relevant to the exam. He is sure to improve since this was his first time teaching 140

Comment: Rokhsar rambles on a lot during lecture, but he does try really hard to help his students. He communicates via the bSpace forums, so if you have questions during his part of the class, be sure to post on there. The way he presents the material is much more confusing than the types of questions he asks on his tests, so just make sure that you understand the key concepts.
