> Course Announcement:
> Molecular Studies of Marine Biological Diversity on the Indian River
> Lagoon, Florida and Andros Island, Bahamas*
> Tentative dates:  June 4 - June 17, 2001
> Study of intra- and interspecific genetic variation of selected marine
> invertebrates.  Laboratory and field studies will compare diversity found
> among tropical mangrove and coral reef habitats in the Indian River Lagoon
> and Andros Island, Bahamas.  In a marine conservation and molecular
> ecology context, lectures and practical laboratory work will cover modern
> techniques such as marine invertebrate (e.g, cnidarian, poriferan etc)
> tissue preparation, DNA purification, genomic fingerprinting, the
> polymerase chain reaction (PCR) and molecular phylogenetic and
> bioinformatics analyses.  Experiential learning through integration into a
> Bahamian  "out-island" community will also be emphasized.  Open to upper
> level biology students and teachers. 3 graduate semester hours credit,
> transferable from FIT.  Total fee: approx $2500.00 (currently tentative,
> and includes 3 hours of Florida Institute of Technology graduate course
> credit; Fees will reflect a 30% discount if course credit is not
