ESC 5350 - Environmental and Ecological Genetics


(3) Credit Hours

This course integrates ecology, genetics, and evolutionary biology with emphasis on applications of genetic concepts in three major areas: molecular analysis, developmental and population genetics. Contemporary approaches to studying evolution in natural populations will be presented, including analyzing heritability of ecologically important traits, using molecular techniques to determine genotypes, evaluating the effect of environmental agents on the genetics and development of organisms, and using models to predict evolution in natural populations. Includes case studies and journal readings to examine evolutionary effects of ecological interactions among organisms. Prerequisite: Approval of instructor.
