BIO 280 - Molecular Ecology


Semester Hours: 3
Periodically
Molecular techniques are now instrumental in a wide range of applications from conservation biology to evolutionary ecology. Students will explore the types and applications of molecular genetic tools to investigate ecological processes, from tracking individuals and monitoring within population variation, to large-scale analysis of community composition. The majority of the course will focus on discussions of the primary literature, supplemented by short lectures, textbook readings, and computer-based analysis and problem sets. The class will include a multi-week simple molecular ecology laboratory exercise designed to demystify the basics of molecular bench work.

Prerequisite(s)/Course Notes:
Lab fee additional. (Formerly BIO 253A: Special Topics in Biology: Molecular Ecology.) May not be taken on a Pass/Fail basis.
