Information

Aims, contents and method of the course

The seminars will discuss recent papers in the field of ecological and evolutionary genomics. We will target recently published articles, independent of the study system or method addressed, according to the interest of students. The students 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), transcriptomics, population epigenomics.

Assessment and permitted materials

1. Presentation of at least 1 paper (15 points).
2. Active participation in the discussions of papers presented by other students (5 points).
Credit key: <10 points: 5; 11-12 points: 4; 13-14 points: 3; 15-17 points 2; 18-20 points: 1.

Minimum requirements and assessment criteria

The students are able to discuss evolutionary and ecological aspects of a given topic. They have a good knowledge of terminology commonly used in this research field. Attendance of the complementary lecture VO300127 is recommended, but not required.

Examination topics
