CURRENT TEACHING ASSIGNMENTS

Undergraduate level

Agronomy 320 - This is an introductory genetics course required for a number majors in the College of Agriculture at Purdue University. The course is offered every semester. I teach it every Fall in collaboration with Clifford Weil of the Agronomy Department at Purdue.

Graduate level

Agronomy 530 - This is an advanced genetics course available to students interested in deepening their understanding of modern genetics and forging links between genomics, population genetics, classical genetics, and development. This is a primary literature-driven course.
