BI-GY 7693 Population Genetics and Evolutionary Biology

3 Credits
The online course is aimed at introducing the key ideas from population genetics and how they are used to understand the interaction of basic evolutionary processes (e.g., including mutation, natural selection, genetic drift, inbreeding, recombination and gene flow) that determine the genetic composition and evolutionary trajectories of natural populations. The goal of this course is to develop students’ critical thinking and analytical reasoning skills in the specific context of many mechanisms shaping genetic variations and within and between populations. This course will equip the students with mathematical and experimental skills to address public health issues.
