Microbial Genomics and Evolution
BIOL 217
Spring 2023
Section: 01  

In this course, students will learn the principles governing the structure, regulation, and evolution of bacterial and viral genomes. We will emphasize the experimental logic and conceptual models that researchers use to link genotype to phenotype. Specific topics will include operons, genetic networks, horizontal gene transfer, phylogenetics, and genome-wide association studies. Motivating examples will be drawn from both medical and environmental microbiology.
