BIOL-1323A Genetic Atlas of the Human Species

The purpose of this course is to teach students how through genetics we can understand processes of our evolution history and how our DNA carries a history that is shared by all of us. This course offers students an important vision where DNA analysis can be associated with the geographic distribution of populations, and support different anthropological hypotheses, such as the origin of man in Africa, his process of distribution around the planet, as well as genetic history and relations within and among populations, and to solve many questions, such as: Who are we? How did we come this far?, When did we come to this planet? And why does the human race is so diverse as to color and distinctive features?
