Information

Aims, contents and method of the course

Population genomics and genome evolution from next-generation sequencing data, such as whole-genome sequencing, target capture, 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. Students that have taken this lecture and have also passed the exam will be given priority for this complementary practical.

Assessment and permitted materials

Active participation in the practical - 5 points; 3 short tests each with 5 points; thus totaling 20 points.

Minimum requirements and assessment criteria

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.

Credit key: <10 points: 5; 10-11.9 points: 4; 12-14.9 points: 3; 15-17.9 points 2; 18-20 points: 1.

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

Reading list

Literature will be given during the course.
