Information

Aims, contents and method of the course

The lecture course presents elementary population genetics and quantitative genetics, and their implications for evolutionary biology, animal and plant breeding, and medicine. Topics include fundamentals of mathematical theory, classical case studies of experimental population genetics, as well as molecular methods. According to the interests of participants, current research on diverse subjects is discussed, including human genomics and applied topics such as forensic genetics, conservation biology and resistance evolution.
Aims: Understanding principles of population genetics and their relevance for evolutionary theory, knowledge of important methods in this field. Consideration of the relevance of current genetic research for human society. Gaining practice in dealing with scientific literature.

Assessment and permitted materials

Written examination (in German); contributions to the course (presentation and discussion) will also be considered in the assessment.
