Courses we teach

Joe Felsenstein's courses

In each case the most recent course web page is linked to. Many of the courses have links to audio recordings of the lectures in WMA and also in MP3 format. Using them and the lecture presentation PDFs you can hear and see what was presented at each lecture. All that's missing is an animated stick figure of me brandishing a laser pointer.

University courses

Note: Joe hopes to retire in September of 2017, so he will not teach the UW courses after that.

Courses taught
Courses co-taught
CSE 590c (Reading and Research in Computational Biology) as one of several faculty members leading this seminar every quarter of the regular academic year (the course is led by Larry Russo, and others include Bill Noble and Su-In Lee).
PopGenLunch, a weekly seminar series on Fridays at lunchtime. "Chalk talks" by participants, mostly local, on their research. This is not a course and does not happen every week -- the schedule is announced on a mailing list, whose email address is popgenlunch (at)
Courses formerly taught
Genome 453 (Evolutionary Genetics) an upper-undergraduate course on the genetic mechanisms of evolution. Through 2015, Joe taught it in odd-numbered years in the Autumn quarter (Mary Kuhner teaches it even-numbered years).
Biology 550D (Morphometrics for Biologists) a graduate course, co-taught with Fred Bookstein, who is Mr. Morphometrics. Was given in Autumn quarter of 2016 on a one-time-only basis.
Genome 541 (Computational Molecular Biology) I taught in this course starting in 2001, and taught it for four weeks in Spring quarter 2010. A number of other computational biologists taught the rest of the quarter. This is the second quarter of a two-quarter sequence starting with Genome 540. I have not taught in this course after 2010.
Genome 560 (Statistics for Genomics students) A 5-week module taught the second half of Spring Quarter, 2009-2011 (paired with Genome 561, taught by Willie Swanson, in the first half of the quarter -- yes, I know they are out of numerical order). This was not a course on the advanced statistical techniques used in genomics, it is an elementary statistics refresher module, and it is not open to students from other departments. From 2012 on it has been a 10-week course, taught by Su-In Lee and Doug Fowler.
Genome 562 (Theoretical Evolutionary Genetics) graduate course on Theoretical Population Genetics. Was given for the last time in Winter quarter of 2017.
Genome 570 (Phylogenetic Inference) a graduate course on phylogenies, given every other year, and for the last time in Winter quarter of 2016.

Summer courses

I have taught in three summer courses, and these days teach in one or two each summer. Here are links to the most recent occurrences. They include PDFs of my projections and audio files of my talks.
