BIO 436 Population Genetics 4.0 Credits
This course surveys population genetics theory as applied to studies of micro-evolutionary changes. We will examine the forces of evolution—mutation, selection, inbreeding, gene flow, genetic drift—and how they can (and cannot) change allele frequencies in populations over time. We will apply the theory that you have learned by also examining current primary literature on human evolutionary history, population genetics and patterns of adaptation.
