Meets with ANTH 6240. This course will discuss ongoing evolution and some of its implications. It has become apparant in the last few years that the human genome continues to evolve and change. In fact, our genome is changing perhaps ten items faster than the average rate of change during the last few million years. We infer this from patterns of diversity along chromosomes, from chimp-human differences, and from population differences in chromosome structure.
