    This graduate seminar will take the form of a journal club that meets weekly to discuss the burgeoning literature on non-model genomics, focusing on applications of next-gen sequencing to address ecological and evolutionary questions in non-model organisms (i.e. without the benefit of a high-quality well-annotated reference genome or extensive species-specific annotation information and genomic resources). The topics covered will be determined based on student interest and will include both novel results and methodological questions.

    This seminar course explores how environmental justice and anti-racism intersect with the academic fields of ecology, environmental science, and conservation. Through reading and discussion, we will examine a diversity of topics through a historical and social lens with a focus on identifying actionable strategies and tools for addressing and overcoming biases and adopting just and anti-racist approaches in both our professional and everyday life.
