In biology, we can study how molecules are assembled to produce cells. Although some organisms are single-celled, we can also study how cells are in turn assembled to create more complex organisms. If we go one level higher, we find that organisms exist in populations. The goal of this course is to understand how interactions at the population level can help us understand the evolution of organisms. This course is more theoretical and mathematical than most courses in the biological
