Attention current students! Are you interested in learning why genomes vary so much in size (from less than 50 to over 100,000 megabases)? What lurks in genomes besides genes? How do these different genomic components evolve?
In Fall 2020, a new special topics seminar (BIOL 495) will be taught on Genome Evolution that addresses these and many other questions. The course is worth 2 credits that will satisfy advanced biology degree requirements and meet on Tuesdays, from 2:10 to 4:00 pm. Students should have completed BIOL 313 (genetics) and BIOL 315 (evolution). You can add the course to your Fall 2020 schedule with the reference number 2075265.
