This course introduces students to the field of evolution and development, with an emphasis on genetics as a unifying force. After reviewing fundamental principles in developmental and evolutionary biology, papers from the primary literature investigating the molecular mechanisms responsible for evolutionary change will be discussed.

The course provides the opportunity to learn about the basic principles and latest discoveries in the burgeoning field of evolutionary developmental biology. This course will also integrate material presented in both EEB and MCDB courses, providing a bridge between disciplines and helping students to develop a more holistic view of biology. Finally, the format of the course explicitly emphasizes the development of critical thinking and written and oral communication skills.
