NTRES 2830

Course information provided by the Courses of Study 2021-2022.

Covers molecular, Mendelian and population genetic principles as they relate to population biology and biodiversity.  A laboratory section is devoted to problem solving, computer exercises and discussions.  We will focus on mechanisms generating and shaping genetic variation within and among populations, examine the regulation of gene expression, and consider the conservation relevance of variation at multiple levels. Recommended as a preliminary to upper-level ecology, evolution, and natural resource management courses.

When Offered Spring.

Forbidden Overlaps Forbidden Overlap: due to an overlap in content, students will not receive credit for both BIOMG 2800 and NTRES 2830.

  • Understand mechanisms generating and shaping genetic variation at the individual, family and population level.
  • Quantitatively analyze patterns of genetic variation to predict inheritance patterns within families and allele frequency changes in populations
  • Accurately interpret the consequences of genetic variation on human health, species endangerment, evolutionary potential and ecosystem function.
  • Appreciate the ethical dimensions of genetic information related to privacy, genetic testing, and transgenics.
