Conservation genetics exposes upper class students and graduate students with interests in the application of genetic approaches to conservation questions to how these approaches are used to address management or conservation strategies for species. The first half of the course reviews the tools used in population genetics with an emphasis on the application of these tools to conservation questions. The second half of the course applies these methods to a current research project in the Reiskind lab and to writing a proposal for a conservation genetic project on a species or species group of the student’s choice.
