Genome Short Course
Interested in learning about genome science and its importance for many fields of science?

The Unraveling the Genome short course, for middle school, high school, and college teachers is presented by the University of California, Museum of Paleontology and cosponsored by the Berkeley Natural History Museums and Science@Cal.

The genome sequence of an organism includes the collective DNA sequences of each chromosome in the organism, whether it be a bacterium, a honey bee, or a chimpanzee. Unraveling and comparing genomes informs our understanding of evolution, biodiversity, conservation, and the very essence of life. From the basics of genome sequencing to horizontal gene transfer and jumping genes, this short course will focus on what we have learned and why it matters.
