3 Credit Hours - Analysis of molecular evolution involves comparing DNA sequences, generating protein sequences from DNA or RNA sequences, comparing protein sequences, generating phylogenies (trees) and estimating time scales. Students will be introduced to each of these topics, including the application of computers to the analyses. After a series of lectures and demonstrations, each student may present at least one seminar to the class and carry out at least one project which requires the use of a computer to complete.
