Courses

Content, organization, function, and evolution of whole genomes. The course examines familiar genetics concepts (e.g. inheritance, transcription, and translation) from the perspective of the entire genome. Students learn about recent advances in genome research, potential impacts on society, and case studies drawn from medicine, evolutionary biology, agriculture, and bioterrorism.
