Information

Aims, contents and method of the course

This course offers the students the possibility to get acquainted with modern literature and recent views on types, rate and mechanisms of polyploid formation as well as genome restructuring accompanying and following polyploidisation. The published materials that will be discussed during this course will focus mostly on incidence and mechanisms leading to polyploidisation as well as on important processes operating on the level of gene, chromosome and genome in different time points after polyploidisation. The course shall help the students to understand and appreciate different aspects of genome evolution and their role in plant evolution by providing in depth modern view of polyploidy in plants.

Assessment and permitted materials

oral paper presentations (70%) and protocol (30%)

Minimum requirements and assessment criteria

Aims:
- to learn and understand the processes leading to polyploid formation and establishment.
- to discuss the evolution of polyploid genomes, with special emphasis on the repetitive DNA, and chromosomal rearrangements (untilizing next egneration sequencing)
- to understand the role and importance of polyploids in plant diversification and speciation

Examination topics

presentations and discussions

Reading list

a wide selection of published research articles and reviews
