课程详情

Introduction to Genetics and Evolution gives interested people a very basic overview of the principles behind these very fundamental areas of biology.  We often hear about new "genome sequences," commercial kits that can tell you about your ancestry (including pre-human) from your DNA or disease predispositions, debates about the truth of evolution, and why animals behave the way they do.  This course provides the basic biology you need to understand all of these issues better and tries to clarify some misconceptions.  No prior coursework is assumed.

这门课的教授非常风趣,能把遗传学里的概念解释得很清楚,有时候会用一些很好玩的类比。每次遇到需要计算的部分都会先手把手教一遍,然后弄个小题进行练习。最棒的一点是,教授经常会卖萌地笑!
