Microbial Genome Evolution: Gene Establishment, Survival, and Exchange

This course examines the genetic and molecular processes that underlie microbial genome evolution. Topics will include processes involved in generating genetic diversity: for example, spontaneous mutagenesis, horizontal gene transfer, and transposition. These molecular events will be discussed within the context of ecological and lifestyle pressure that help shape genome content and architecture. Students will read one primary literature article with a current book chapter or review article, and these readings will serve as the discussion focus during the class period.
