University of Buenos Aires--Genes and Fossils: an introduction to human evolution
Last December, professor Fabian Crespo organized and taught a graduate course at the University of Buenos Aires (Argentina) entitled: "Genes and Fossils: an introduction to human evolution"
The course was for Ph.D. students in anthropology, archaeology and biology. Colleagues from the University of Buenos Aires and National University of La Plata participated in the course. One of the long term goals of this academic project is to establish a potential academic collaboration among students and faculty from both Universities in Argentina (UBA and UNLP) and the University of Louisville.
