BIOL585

Human Genetics

This paper explores the genetics of human evolution, adaptation and disease. The topics will extend from classical population genetics into contemporary areas of molecular biology and bioinformatics. Particular attention will be paid to key genetic changes that occurred during hominid evolution, polymorphic variations and disease susceptibility in humans and the role of somatic mutations in cancer.
