BIOL 15 Genetic Variation and Evolution

This course examines fundamental population-level processes and mechanisms that give rise to diversity of living organisms. The class will explore the interplay of evolutionary forces acting on genetic variation for both single-gene traits and complex traits determined by multiple genes and environmental conditions. Evolution of the human population will serve as the main study system. The class periods will include problem-solving sessions and hands-on activities on experimental evolution, observational data analyses and computer-based evolutionary inferences. Open to all students without prerequisite. Note: BIOL 12, BIOL 13, BIOL 14, BIOL 15, BIOL 16 may be taken in any order.  NOTE:  As of winter term 2019, this course no longer has a laboratory component and will not meet the SLA requirement.

It includes not only the meeting time and instructor, but also its official distributive and/or world culture designation. This information supersedes any information you may see elsewhere, to include what may appear in this ORC/Catalog or on a department/program website. Note that course attributes may change term to term therefore those in effect are those (only) during the term in which you enroll in the course.
