General description

A broad overview on genetics of behavior. Several teachers with different aspects and organisms.

Learning outcomes

Research on a variety of organisms will be explored in the context of identifying the genetic basis of behavioral traits.


This course will explore what is known about the genetic control of behavior including circadian and seasonal rhythms, migration, personality and social behavior. Current research using genetics, genomics, and transcriptomics to uncover behavioral traits in humans and other mammals, birds, and fish (and even some aspects of plant 'behavior') will be presented.
