* Load is given in academic hour (1 academic hour = 45 minutes)
1. Understand and recognize the evolutionary processes of cosmic evolution; evolution of Earth, biological evolution to the evolution of the genus Homo
2. Know the basic mechanisms of evolution in biology
3. Identify evolutionary approach in the theoretical and experimental work
4. Connect the acquired knowledge and develop critical thinking in understanding the evolutionary mechanisms and theory
5. Use the phylogenetic analyses in the evolution
6. Apply mathematical models in phylogeny and evolution
7. Use mathematical models in evolutionary genetics
8. Motivate students to collect new literature data for the purpose of interpreting phylogenetic relationships and evolutionary science
