NTRES 2830

Course information provided by the Courses of Study 2023-2024.

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.

Prerequisites/Corequisites Recommended prerequisite: BIOEE 1780.
Forbidden Overlaps Forbidden Overlap: due to an overlap in content, students will not receive credit for both BIOMG 2800 and NTRES 2830.

  • Apply the process of science to infer mechanisms generating and shaping genetic variation patterns 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.
  • Describe the ethical dimensions of genetic information related to privacy, genetic testing, and transgenics.
  • Describe the ways in which racial and other prejudices have shaped and continue to affect research, medical application and policy relating to genetics and inheritance.
