BIOL 322 - Genetics of Populations

FC NSMA QFR
4 credits
The evolution of phenotypic traits results from the action of selective and non-selective forces on the distribution of genetic variation within and among populations. We will use mathematical and computational models to study adaptation and the genetic architecture of complex traits in the context of natural populations. These evolutionary approaches have critical applications in the study of disease, conservation biology, agriculture, and the response to climate change. Labs may involve field work or be computer-based. Field trip(s) required.

Prerequisites: BIOL 200.
