  Course Description
This lecture/discussion course conveys genomics approaches to tackle the questions:What makes us human? and Why are we different from each other? Specifically, this course will introduce the state-of-the-art concepts and methodologies in human evolutionary genomics exploring topics such as `human genomic variation', `ancient admixture, `gene-phenotype-environment', interactions, `adaptive developmental evolution', `nature vs. nurture', `genetic bases of disease', and `experimental and statistical approaches to associate genotype to phenotype'. The course is aimed at students in biological sciences and related fields with a strong interest in evolutionary genetics and human genomic variation. Also, this course is of relevance to advanced students in a number of disciplines, including biomedical sciences and anthropology. After taking this course, each student will have the knowledge regarding the contemporary theoretical and methodological state of human evolutionary genomics.
