BIOL 483 - Evolution: From Genes to Genomes

(4.00)
This is a combined lecture and hands-on computing course that study the applications of evolutionary theory to the exploration and analysis of phenotypic and biological sequence data. We will begin by building a sound conceptual basis for the theory of evolution, including an introduction to population genetics and phylogenetics. The course consists of one hour lecture, one hour group discussion of current papers in evolution and a two hour computer lab per week. Biological sequence data is analyzed in the computer laboratories to illustrate evolutionary principles and provide practice for data analysis and interpretation. Students will be required to write a review of the literature on a topic in evolution related to their own interests and give presentations on their topic during the last half of the semester.  Note:This course is Writing Intensive.
