ANTH 333 Human Biological Variation
A detailed examination of the data and methods used to analyze human biological variation. Variation is examined in blood types, protein and enzyme polymorphisms, DNA markers, anthropometrics, skin color, dental measures, and dermatoglyphics. Variation is analyzed in relationship to sex, age, natural selection, adaptation, and population history. A substantial part of the course consists of in-class lab experience in the measurement of variation and the application of analytic methods and their interpretation. (LA, WS2)
