Information

Aims, contents and method of the course

Population genomics and genome evolution from next-generation sequencing data, such as whole-genome sequencing, RAD sequencing and transcriptomics. We will exemplify genomic investigation procedures to trace natural selection, genetic ancestry, function, structure and gene-environment interactions, starting with introducing basic omic approaches, such as de novo assembly and mapping. Attendance of the complementary lecture VO300127 is highly recommended.

Assessment and permitted materials

Active participation in the practical 4 points, two short written exams 5 points each; mini presentation 6 points; thus totalling 20 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

Attendance of the complementary lecture VO300127 is required - the lectures introduce the necessary theoretical background to the practical aspects done with the students here.
The students are able to understand and apply basic pipelines in genomics (e.g., quality check and filtering of NGS reads; mapping; vcf manipulation; differential expression; SNP calling), and they have good knowledge and skills in the fields of evolutionary and ecological research.

Examination topics

Practical work at the computer; demonstration
Understanding main concepts in evolutionary and ecological genomics
Integration of methods and data in a scientific presentation
