Intensive schools are for students enrolled in Online Mode only, unless specified in the notes.
|Supervised Exam||There is a supervised exam at the end of the teaching period in which you are enrolled. The paper-based exam will be held at an established exam venue, and coordinated by UNE Exams Unit.|
|Pre-requisites||GENE210 or GENE210A or EVOL211 or candidature in a postgraduate award|

This unit provides an understanding of population genetics concepts and the mechanisms that underlie genetic and phenotypic variation. The unit is directly relevant to students interested in understanding evolution from a genetics perspective; how genetics affects populations and biodiversity; and in the use of the latest genomic technologies to study genetic variability from a population level (human, livestock or wild populations). Computer simulations and analysis of real data sets provide a hands-on approach to understand the dynamics of populations.
Where calculators are permitted in examinations, it must be selected from an approved list, which can be accessed from the Further Information link below.
Note: Students are expected to purchase prescribed material. Please note that textbook requirements may vary from one teaching period to the next.
