This course is an introduction to genetics, focused on its applications for current issues related to the diagnosis of human diseases, paternity, taxonomy, ecology, conservation, agronomy and the environment.

After having gained a general understanding of the concepts related to genetics, students will perform research projects in Costa Rica, which will then be presented and discussed in order to learn what types of questions science can answer using genetics as a tool.

Field trips and laboratory practice will provide an opportunity for students to study how samples are collected, processed and analyzed.
