Course Academic Credits: 5 ECTS
Content: Course is held in German, course details at https://ufind.univie.ac.at/de/course.html?lv=265002&semester=2019W

Course Academic Credits: 3 ECTS
Content: The lecture course deals with processes of speciation and co-evolution in eukaryotes. An overview of principles and theories is complemented by detailed presentations of case studies. Topics covered include: species concepts, isolating mechanisms, hybridization, polyploidy, asexual speciation, geographical parthenogenesis, theory of co-evolution, interactions between plants and herbivores, pollination biology, mimicry, interactions between fungi, photoautotrophs and animals, convergent evolution.

Course Academic Credits: 2 ECTS
Content: This course will be taught entirely in English. It will consist of 6 lectures approx. 1.5-2h long, with the first meeting on 02.10.2019 at 11:00 in SR3 UZA 1, Biozentrum Althanstraße 14, 1090 Wien. This course will cover the topics of the diversity of animal genomes, the mechanisms of their evolution, and methodology of analysis (phologenetic inference, phylogenomics, genome architecture evolution).

Course Academic Credits: 5 ECTS
Content: This seminar is a mandatory part of the Master Evolutionary Systems Biology (module MES2), but open to several other Master studies. The language of the seminar is English. The students will get a paper from the recent research in Molecular Evolution and Evolutionary Developmental Biology (EvoDevo). They are demanded to expand the literature research on this topic, present the topic in an oral seminar and write an 3-5 page essay summarizing the findings and the current status.

Course Academic Credits: 5 ECTS
Content: This course will focus on population-genetic models describing the evolution of spatially structured populations in heterogeneous environments. This leads to migration-selection models, which can be formulated either in terms of systems of difference or differential equations if individuals migrate between different patches of the environment, or in terms of parabolic partial differential equations if individuals migrate in a continuous environment in which the average dispersal distance is small compared to selectively relevant changes in the environment. Topics such as adaptation to new environments, divergence among subpopulations (often the first step to speciation), and the theory of clines will be treated.

Time and Place: Tue 11:00 – 12:30, Wed 11:15 – 12:00, Besprechungsraum 9th floor, Faculty of Mathematics. Starts Oct 2
Details and registration: https://ufind.univie.ac.at/en/index.html

Course Academic Credits: 4 ECTS
Content: In this seminar (called the “Journal Club”), recent papers in theoretical population genetics are discussed. Knowledge of the basic population genetics theory is required. The papers to be discussed are distributed in advance by email. Participants are expected to have read the paper because the seminar focuses on discussions. Current and prospective PhD students are advised to attend this seminar. Potential participants need to send an email to Reinhard.Buerger ‘at’ univie.ac.at, so that they can be added to the email list and receive the materials.

Time and Place: Wed 09.15-11.00, Besprechungsraum 9th floor, Faculty of Mathematics. Starts Oct 09
Details and registration: https://ufind.univie.ac.at/en/index.html

Time and place: 02 Sept – 08 Oct 2019 University of Veterinary Medicine, Vienna
An intense Population Genetics Introductory Course for PhD students will be organised by the Vienna Graduate School of Population Genetics.
Schedule and details are available here

Course Academic Credits: 3 ECTS
Content: This will discuss recent papers published in the field of speciation genomics and related emerging topics largely circumscribed to evolutionary genomics. We will target recently published articles, independent of the study system or method addressed, according to the interest of students. The students and lecturers will take turns presenting one paper per meeting, which will be further discussed in detail together with the group. The topics may include comparative genomics, approaches to variation and adaptation, population genomics, ecological genomics (including speciation and hybridization) and population epigenomics.

Time and Place: Weekly on Fridays 2pm to ca 4pm, ÜR3, Faculty Centre for  Biodiversity, University of Vienna, Rennweg 14, 3 district.
Details and registration: https://ufind.univie.ac.at/en/index.html
