Lecturer: Aj.Nuttaphon 10 January 2017

Genetics of Evolution

Population genetics and evolution; linkage disequilibrium; effects of mutation, selection, gene flow, drift on gene/allele frequencies; inbreeding and inbreeding depression

Lecturer: Aj.Nuttaphon 17 January 2017

Adaptation

Natural selection could lead to adaptation in organisms. With experimentation, observation, and comparative methods, we can study the adaptation and its limitation.
