Class Objectives
/Class Outline
The students will develop the ability to understand animal life phenomena and social population related to animal heredity/genetic and genetic information from a molecular biological perspective, and develop the ability of animal genetic technology, that is, individual character or population structure of animal, or animal molecular breeding. Several of the seven classes are scheduled to include computer simulation exercises or laboratory experiments. 
Class Schedule Part 1 Animal genetic information and its use
Part 2 Animal phylogeny and evolutionary analysis based on animal genetic information
Part 3 Animal domestication analysis as an indicator of DNA marker
