Biological Variation Project – Biological Anthropology


Biological Variation Project – Biological Anthropology

June 21 – July 26, 2015


The Mexican Biological Variation Project is aimed at understanding the range of human biological variation both phenotypic and genotypic present in southern Mexico. Students will be broadly trained in research strategies for human biology field studies ranging from the planning stage through data analysis. These will include training in study design, human biological phenotype collection, and DNA extraction methods. Our field-school is run concurrently with the Undocumented Migration Project (UMP) that documents the experiences of migrants from Central America and beyond. A portion of the program will be dedicated to ground work for future epigenetic work among migrant populations. For more information visit the field school website. 

Connecticut College will award each student 8 semester credit units (12 quarter units). Tuition includes credit units, and room and board.
