This course will look at the various mechanisms of evolution, how these mechanisms work, and how change is measured. The course will begin by reviewing the evolutionary concepts of selection and speciation. The student will then learn to measure evolutionary change and look at the history of life according to the fossil record and a discussion of the broad range of life forms as they are currently classified. Upon completion of this course, students will be able to: define evolution and describe different types of selection; provide examples of microevolutionary forces and describe how they impact the genetics of populations; describe the Hardy-Weinberg principle and solve problems related to Hardy-Weinberg equilibrium; provide examples of games used in evolutionary game theory; connect biological phenomena to game theory; develop simple phylogenies from molecular or morphological data; identify important evolutionary events that have occurred throughout geologic time; characterize and provide examples of major plant and animal phyla.

PKU Carriers  How Many Are in Your Hometown?

PKU Carriers How Many Are in Your Hometown?

In this interrupted case study, students read about a college student with phenylketonuria (PKU).Ę Students learn how diet affects a person with PKU and how PKU is inherited. The case is designed to introduce introductory biology students to the Hardy-Weinberg Principle. Terms of the equation are related to phenotypes and genotypes mentioned in the case. Given the number of people in the population with PKU and assuming the population is in Hardy-Weinberg Equilibrium, students estimate the number of carriers for PKU in the population. Finally, students estimate the probability that a person from this population with PKU would have a child with PKU and the probability that a person from this population without PKU would have a child with PKU.
