Half of my teaching is related to supervising undergraduate and graduate researchers in my lab. This includes students working for pay, honors theses, course credit, or volunteering. I believe strongly in mentoring undergraduate research and am usually looking for qualified minions.
I co-teach BIO 340 every Fall semester. Since genetics (along with evolution) serves as a foundation to most areas of modern biology, BIO 340 is treated as the third course in the intro series for life science majors.
In my lectures, I cover transmission and evolutionary genetics. My co-instructor covers molecular genetics.
BIO 340 is an hard course for most students and demands a lot of work on the part of students to stay on top of the material. We provide you a lot of resources to succeed, but you must take advantage of them in a timely fashion. For many students, this is their first 300-level class and their first experience at being challenged to analyze novel scientific problems.
