Teaching

Having gained a formal qualification in teaching (PGCHE) in 2008, wherever possible I like to use examples of my own and my colleagues research to inform my teaching.

Taught courses

I am the Convenor and sole lecturer of the 10 credit 3rd year module Conservation Genetics, C43541. I will assist the convenors, Prof. John Brookfield and Dr Chris Wade, in teaching Population Genetics, C43540 and Molecular Evolution, C13698, respectively. In addition, I teach Investigating and Writing About Biology (IWAB, C12370), as well as hosting final year and MSci project students.

Material for Computer Practical in Population Genetics (C43540)

If you are a student on the course Population Genetics, C43540, then the following material is necessary for the lab class. Otherwise, it is not at all useful!

Davison, A and Clarke, BC (2000). History or current selection? A molecular analysis of 'area effects' in Cepaea nemoralis. Proceedings of the Royal Society of London B 267: 1399-1405.

The Evanno et al (2005) paper - useful discussion and ideas on how to best infer the number of populations, K.
