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 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.
