Eligibility:

For single subject courses within Chalmers programmes the same eligibility requirements apply, as to the programme(s) that the course is part of.

Course specific prerequisites

A first course in probability and statistics.

Aim

This course is an introduction to the field of population genetics concerned with the genetic structure of populations and how it changes through time.

The genetic and statistical principles underlying population genetics are for the most part simple and straightforward which makes the course suitable for two different kinds of students (both at the undergraduate and graduate levels):
- biology students with affinity for mathematics,
- non-biologists with a good mathematical back-ground interested in genetics.

Content

  • Genetic variation.
  • Mutation, migration and selection.
  • Random genetic drift.
  • Molecular population genetics.
  • Quantitative genetics.
