Genomic approaches to variation and adaptation: a road map (Leroy/Paun/Swarts)
Course Academic Credits: 3 ECTS
Content: Students learn essential concepts in evolutionary and population genomics from next-generation sequencing data including genome assembly, detecting Single Nucleotide Polymorphisms (SNPs) and Copy Number Variants (CNV´s), genomic investigation procedures to trace natural selection during adaptation and speciation, Genome Wide Association Scanning (GWAS) in wild species, genomic and geographic clines and the impact of hybridization and gene flow on genomes, structural and functional aspects of genomes, and gene-environment interactions.
Time and place: Course takes place Mondays between Oct 3th and Nov 28th 17:30-19:30
