BIOL 408 - Seminar: Experimental Evolution

FC NSMA
4 credits
An evolutionary perspective contributes to our understanding of cancer occurrence and progression, infectious diseases (e.g., HIV), improvement and management of agro-ecosystems, and management of exploited populations (e.g., fisheries). More than simply a historical process, evolution in these contexts can be studied experimentally. Such studies have the potential to aid us in avoiding undesirable outcomes or improve the probability of desirable outcomes. We will explore the scientific literature in experimental evolution, developing a deeper understanding via written assignments and student-led class discussions.
