BIOL 666 - Population and Conservation Genetics

[4]
This course provides a comprehensive overview of the fields of population and conservation genetics. The principles of population genetics are needed to understand evolution, epidemiology, and conservation biology. Primary forces and processes involved in shaping genetic variation in natural populations (mutation, drift, selection, migration, mating patterns, inbreeding, isolation, population size and population subdivision), methods of measuring genetic variation and structure in natural populations, as well as strategies for worldwide conservation of endangered species will be emphasized. The course is a hybrid course and consists of lecture, primary literature discussions, and experimental computer simulations for analyzing or modeling population genetic data.
