Research in ecology and evolution has addressed many important issues as empirical and theoretical levels. However, relatively little is known about the genomic basis underlying phenotypic change. This module will highlight recent developments in ecological and evolutionary genomics, including major research questions and approaches used to address them. Coursework will include formal lectures, extensive critical reading of primary literature (peer-reviewed publications) and extensive in-class contributions by students.
