Teaching

Fall 2020: Conservation Genetics

The goal of this course is to learn the concepts of population genetics and how to apply these principles to issues in conservation. By the end of this course students will
•    be able to understand what contributes to natural variation in populations
•    be able to analyze and interpret population genetic data
•    be able to understand contributing factors to extinction and conservation
•    be able to evaluate the ways in which genetic information can be employed to conserve threatened species
