Comparative Genomics - Science Research Course

February 24, 2014 - April 2, 2014

Comparative Genomics

This course will cover genetics and genomics, with a focus on understanding the composition of the genome. Students will learn what is in the genome, how mutations arise, and how variation in the genome impacts evolution and natural selection. Through a series of projects, we will study how Museum scientists use genetic information to study the history of life on earth and the conservation of endangered species.  

This course is a pre-requisite for the Museum’s Science Research Mentoring Program (SRMP) in the biology and anthropology tracks.
