BIOL 59500 Genomics in Ecology and Evolution

Session Offered:

Spring Credit 1




Over the last ten years, technological developments have led to a tremendous increase in available sequence data. These data are generated through a variety of approaches- whole genome sequencing, genome resequencing, and reduced representation sequencing- and are increasingly applied to ecological and evolutionary research involving non-model organisms. This one credit seminar course will highlight how analyses that utilize these genomic data are enhancing our ability to understand the relationships between the environment, phenotypes, and genotypes through a survey of current literature. Potential topics include population genomics, conservation, speciation, and genome adaptation to environmental change. Special emphasis will be placed on the use of genomic data as a tool for understanding complex, biological relationships to informing long-term management of wild populations
