Computational Theory of Molecular EvolutionNot offered this year
Offered most years, last taught:
This course employs intellectual traditions from computer science and biology to investigate the properties and principles of DNA sequence evolution. The roles of mutation, natural selection, population size and subdivision, and genetic recombination are explored. Lectures complemented by web-based computer exercises. Expected: either an introduction to evolution (BIOL 0200, 0480) or to computer science (CSCI 0150, 0160, 0170).
