This course explores the use of genetics to understand human biological variation and evolution. Among the areas of genetics to be explored are dermatoglyphics (fingerprints), craniometrics (skulls and teeth), anthropometrics (body dimensions), simple Mendelian traits, molecular genetics, genetics of complex traits (skin color, height, obesity), population genetics, and disease adaptations.
