Evolutionary Genetics and Genomics

BIOL-GA 1129

Explores the genetic and genomic mechanisms underlying evolutionary change. Emphases are on complex trait evolution and its quantitative analysis, and the impact of modern mapping and genomic techniques on evolutionary biology. Topics include the genetics of adaptation and character regression; the evolution of complex characters and traits such as organ systems, the senses, and patterns of behavior; and methods for the study of quantitative trait locus (QTL) variation and multifactorial systems.
