MARINE PHYLOGENOMICS: BIOSM 472, is an intensive four-credit laboratory- and field-oriented summer course aimed at helping motivated undergraduate students and working professionals integrate advances in molecular biology and genomics with field-based research in ecology and evolution. Appledore Island is situated in the Isles of Shoals archipelago ten miles off the New England coast in the heart of the Gulf of Maine. The archipelago is rich in biological
diversity, seabird and marine mammal breeding areas and has a long and colorful maritime history. The Shoals Lab hosts a vibrant and
diverse international community of students and investigators throughout the summer field season in an intimate island setting immersed in natural history and regional culture. The course enjoys full tech support from Cornell University, Harvard University, and the nearby Hubbard Center for Genomics Research at the University of New Hampshire. [ more ]
