NEW GRAD COURSE
Course Number: E&EB718
CourseTitle: Using Genomic Methods to Solve Evolutionary Problems
Instructors: Nancy Moran and Howard Ochman
Course Description. Modern technologies that provide in-depth information about genomes, transcriptomes, and proteomes have revolutionized how we can investigate evolutionary processes. This course will examine some of the major questions in evolutionary biology and show how the incorporation of genomic approaches has helped to resolve several longstanding issues in evolutionary biology and to merge evolutionary biology with other areas of biology. The course will reflect student interests, but likely evolutionary questions will involve the roles of natural selection, genetic drift and mutation in shaping organismal traits, species formation, coevolution of lineages, and phylogenomics.
The class will meet on Tuesday afternoons (tentatively 4-5:30 pm). The first class meets on September 4, 2012.
