BIO 177: Plant Microbe Interaction (BIO 277)

Molecular basis of plant symbiosis and pathogenesis. Topics include mechanisms of recognition and signaling between microbes and plant hosts, with examples such as the role of small molecules, secreted peptides, and signal transduction pathways in symbiotic or pathogenic interactions. Readings include landmark papers together with readings in the contemporary literature. Prerequisites: Biology core and two or more upper division courses in genetics, molecular biology, or biochemistry. Recommended: plant genetics or plant biochemistry.
Terms: Spr | Units: 3 | Grading: Letter (ABCD/NP)
Instructors: Long, S. (PI)

BIO 178: Microbiology Literature (BIO 278)

For advanced undergraduates and first-year graduate students. Critical reading of the research literature in prokaryotic genetics and molecular biology, with particular applications to the study of major human pathogens. Classic and foundational papers in pathogenesis, genetics, and molecular biology; recent literature on bacterial pathogens such as Salmonella, Vibrio, and/or Yersinia. Diverse experimental approaches: biochemistry, genomics, pathogenesis, and cell biology. Prerequisites: Biology Core and two upper-division courses in genetics, molecular biology, or biochemistry.
Terms: Win | Units: 3 | Grading: Letter (ABCD/NP)
Instructors: Long, S. (PI)

BIO 181: Human Genetic Variation

The geographic distribution of human genetic variation; the genetic perspective on ancient and recent human migrations; quantitative methods for inference of human evolutionary history from patterns of genetic variation. Connections of human genetic variation to current topics such as ancestry testing, DNA forensics, and identification of disease genes. Prerequisites; Bio or HumBio core, calculus.
Terms: not given this year | Units: 3 | Grading: Letter or Credit/No Credit

BIO 182: Modeling Cultural Evolution (BIO 282)

Seminar. Quantitative models for the evolution of socially transmitted traits. Rates of change of learned traits in populations and patterns of cultural diversity as a function of innovation and cultural transmission. Learning in constant and changing environments. Possible avenues for gene-culture coevolution.
Terms: Spr | Units: 3 | Grading: Letter (ABCD/NP)
Instructors: Feldman, M. (PI)

BIO 183: Theoretical Population Genetics (BIO 283)

Models in population genetics and evolution. Selection, random drift, gene linkage, migration, and inbreeding, and their influence on the evolution of gene frequencies and chromosome structure. Models are related to DNA sequence evolution. Prerequisites: calculus and linear algebra, or consent of instructor.
Terms: alternate years, given next year | Units: 3 | Grading: Letter or Credit/No Credit

BIO 186: Natural History of the Vertebrates (BIO 286)

Broad survey of the diversity of vertebrate life. Discussion of the major branches of the vertebrate evolutionary tree, with emphasis on evolutionary relationships and key adaptations as revealed by the fossil record and modern phylogenetics. Modern orders introduced through an emphasis on natural history, physiology, behavioral ecology, community ecology, and conservation. Lab sessions focused on comparative skeletal morphology through hands-on work with skeletal specimens. Discussion of field methods and experience with our local vertebrate communities through field trips to several of California¿s distinct biomes. Prerequisite: Biology core.
Terms: not given this year | Units: 4 | Grading: Letter or Credit/No Credit
