BIOL 3110U – Population Genetics


This explores how evolutionary forces drive allele frequency change. Topics include drift, coalescence, random mating, inbreeding, genetic drift, mutation load and natural selection as they relate to populations. The role and significance of molecular genetics as it relates to population genetics, evolution, systematics and phylogeny is also considered. Concepts will be examined in the context of forensic science as well as other applied biological sciences.
