COURSE TITLE

CONSERVATION GENETICS IN AQUATIC ECOSYSTEM (Genetik Konservasi dalam Ekosistem Akuatik)

COURSE CODE

STA2503

SYNOPSIS

This course covers basic concepts and inter-relatedness between conservation, genetic diversity and evolution. It emphasizes on the suitable usage of molecular biology techniques in selected conservation efforts. Among the highlights of this course are discussions on information genetic detective work with reference to the use of mtDNA information to advance knowledge about marine turtle patterns of nesting, migration and forensic identification animal products sold in markets (ii) using genetics to assess biogeography/biodiversity hotspots (iii) genetics role as complement to traditional data in re-validating systematics (iv) hybridization issues, forensic identification, stock identification and management in aquaculture system. Besides lectures in classroom, this course involves field trip and case studies.

(Kursus ini membincangkan konsep-konsep dan hubung kait antara konservasi, kepelbagaian genetik dan evolusi. Ia menekankan kegunaan teknik-teknik biologi molekular bersesuaian dengan aktiviti konservasi. Antara perbincangan menarik dalam kursus ini ialah: information penggunaan genetik dalam penyiasatan terutamanya informasi mtDNA menyelesaikan masalah migrasi dan pelakuan bertelur bagi penyu laut, pengenalan forensik barangan berasaskan haiwan yang dijual di pasaran (ii) menggunakan maklumat genetik untuk menyiasat kawasan-kawasan keutaman biogeografi/kepelbagaian biologi (iii) pengetahuan genetik sebagai komplemen data-data tradisional untuk semakan semula sistematik (iv) isu-isu hybrid, identifikasi stok dan pengurusan sistem akuakultur. Selain daripada syarahan, kursus ini juga melibatkan kajian lapangan dan kajian kes.)
