Biology | Evolution, Honors
S318 | 1219 | Lively, C


This course is a broad overview of the study of evolution - the
conceptual core of biology, in the context of case studies
and intensive writing. We will explore topics such as the origins
and history of life; the interplay of heredity and environment,
mutation and selection in shaping organisms; molecular, genomic,
and computational technologies for studying evolution; and the
application of evolutionary thinking to modern problems in
biomedical, agricultural and other contexts.
