Evolution (CERC, Columbia University): this 5-week intensive course is targeted at a continuing education audience, and explores the fundamentals of genetics and heredity, evolutionary ideas and evolution mechanisms, including Natural Selection, and their relevance to Society.
Evolution (Paul McGhee Division, New York University): this semester-long course explores the history of the study of evolution and evolutionary ideas, the fundamentals of genetics and heredity, evolutionary mechanisms and evidence, and the relevance to evolution to Society.
Molecular Ecology (E3B, Columbia University): this semester-long course explores various methods of statistical inference of ecological patterns and processes using molecular data. We present the foundations for the molecular identification of populations to species, and apply various analytical methods to real datasets. The course uses real molecular datasets for the inference of population-level phenomena such as population structure, population growth and decline, detection of demographic bottlenecks, migration, and natural selection, and species-level issues such as species divergence and species diversity. I have taught this course together with Dr. Kolokotronis.
