Ecological genetics resides at the interface of ecology, evolution, and genetics. At the heart of ecological genetics lie two components of adaptive evolution: genetic variation in phenotypic traits and natural selection on phenotypes. In this course, students will explore basic concepts in population and quantitative genetics and apply these to the analysis of genetic and phenotypic data. This course provides a conceptual link between courses focused on genetics and molecular biology and courses focused on whole organisms and their ecology. This course is a Graduation Composition and Communication Requirement (GCCR) course in certain programs, and hence is not likely to be eligible for automatic transfer credit to UK.

Prereq: BIO 303  and BIO 304  or equivalent, or consent of the instructor.
