This course covers the basics of population genetics, with special reference to evolutionary questions and questions relating to anthropology. Core concepts of population genetics will be emphasized, including: selection, drift, Hardy-Weinberg equilibrium, neutrality, heterogeneity, genetic distance, gene flow, founder effects, and bottlenecks. Regular homework assignments will require students to calculate these various measures from real and simulated data. Final projects will involve population genetic analyses of data to test hypotheses using real and simulated data. There will be midterm and final exams involving quantitative and qualitative questions about population genetics and evolution.
