Have you ever wonder why there is no vaccine for AIDS? Or do you imagine why is it easier to develop a vaccine to abolish polio than to control influenza? Is there any natural selection for a ‘language gene’? In which sense sex and parasites are similar? Why don’t snakes eat grass and leaves? When does ‘maximising fitness’ lead to evolutionary extinction? Why don’t we have nose and lips in the back of our heads? How does modern genomics explain and challenge the field? Enrol the [course_title] course and learn about evaluation and finds the answer to the above mention questions.
Genomics refers to the branch of the molecular biology that deals with the structure, function, evolution, and mapping of genomes. In the course, you will learn to analyse evolution from a computational, modelling, and engineering perspective.
This course does not involve any written exams. Students need to answer 5 assignment questions to complete the course, the answers will be in the form of written work in pdf or word. Students can write the answers in their own time. Each answer need to be 200 words (1 Page). Once the answers are submitted, the tutor will check and assess the work.
