HEB 1450: Human Evolutionary Genetics
This course investigates the human genome in an evolutionary context. Topics covered include human and primate comparative genetics, the genetic evidence for modern human origins, human genetic diversity and its functional implications (including disease), and natural selection on the human genome.
HEB 1455: Primate Genetics
This course integrates genetics with behavior and ecology to consider key topics in primate evolution. Major questions posed by this class include how DNA-based evolutionary relationships provide information about primate anatomy, physiology, and behavior; the role of dispersal, paternity, and kinship in structuring primate societies; and the application of behavioral genetics and epigentics to humans and primates.
HEB 97: Sophomore Tutorial in Human Evolutionary Biology
An introduction to the issues and methods of human evolutionary biology, focusing on evolutionary theory, the concept of adaptation, and their application to human evolution.
HEB 3200: Graduate Proseminar in Human Evolutionary Biology
Proseminar for Human Evolutionary Biology graduate students. Discussion of adaptations and the process of adaptation using examples from various areas of human evolutionary biology.
