Physical/Life Science Exploration
This course will use human genes to study health and history. Through genetic data, we will see how populations have grown, moved, and mixed. We will also see how humans have adapted to a changing environment, with results that are sometimes beneficial and sometimes unfortunate. The first part of the course provides background on evolution, the second uses genes to study history, and the last deals with adaptive and maladaptive consequences of evolution.
