Marine Genomics: from Biodiversity to Evolution Research Apprenticeship
(BIOL 479 - 15 credits)
Biology and Medicine today is the Biology of Genomes. Advances of modern genomic sciences and technologies are just beginning to be introduced into traditional zoological and comparative disciplines including marine biology. With the goal of being able to ask important evolutionary questions, apprentices explore basal metazoans (such as Ctenophores and Cnidarian or jellies) and basal deuterostomes (such as Hemichoradates, Echinoderms, and Tunicates or marine worms, urchins, chitins, and sea squirts). They will work to characterize the expression of genes in these species crucial for overall body patterning, organization of nervous, muscular, hormonal and immune systems.
