BIO 85: Evolution

Understanding evolution is key to understanding the diversity of life on earth. We will be focusing on the fundamental principles of evolutionary biology from natural and sexual selection to the formation of new species. To understand these concepts we will delve into the mechanisms that underlie them. The course will also link these fundamental processes to important contemporary evolutionary topics such as the evolution of behavior, life history evolution, and human evolution. Prerequisites: BIO 60 or 61 or 62 or equivalent; recommended: BIO 82, or permission of instructor.
Terms: Win | Units: 4 | UG Reqs: WAY-SMA

BIO 113: Fundamentals of Molecular Evolution (BIO 244)

The inference of key molecular evolutionary processes from DNA and protein sequences. Topics include random genetic drift, coalescent models, effects and tests of natural selection, combined effects of linkage and natural selection, codon bias and genome evolution. Prerequisites: Biology core or BIO 82, 85 or graduate standing in any department, and consent of instructor.
Terms: Win | Units: 4 | UG Reqs: GER: DB-NatSci

BIO 115: The Hidden Kingdom - Evolution, Ecology and Diversity of Fungi (BIO 239)

Fungi are critical, yet often hidden, components of the biosphere. They regulate decomposition, are primary partners in plant symbiosis and strongly impact agriculture and economics. Students will explore the fascinating world of fungal biology, ecology and evolution via lecture, lab, field exercises and Saturday field trips that will provide traditional and molecular experiences in the collection, analysis and industrial use of diverse fungi. Students will chose an environmental niche, collect and identify resident fungi, and hypothesize about their community relationship. Prerequisite: BIO 81, 85 recommended.
Terms: Win | Units: 4 | UG Reqs: WAY-SMA

BIO 187: Mathematical Population Biology (CME 187)

Mathematical models in population biology, in biological areas including demography, ecology, epidemiology, evolution, and genetics. Mathematical approaches include techniques in areas such as combinatorics, differential equations, dynamical systems, linear algebra, probability, and stochastic processes. Math 50 or 60 series is required, and at least two of ( Bio 81, Bio 82, Bio 85) are strongly recommended.
