Information

Aims, contents and method of the course

The aim of this course is to introduce students to key molecular and genetic tools in ecology and evolution, such as DNA sequencing including NGS, widely used PCR-based genetic markers, as well as cytogenetic, phylogenetic and population genetic analysis methods using different computer programs. Students will get a chance to work with these tools and programs.

Assessment and permitted materials

Active participation in the practical 5 points, 3 short tests and 2 homeworks together 15 points, thus totalling 20 points.
Credit key: <10 points: 5; 10-11.9 points: 4; 12-14.9 points: 3; 15-17.9 points 2; 18-20 points: 1.

Minimum requirements and assessment criteria

Ability to understand and use essential molecular and cytogenetic techniques including computer programs for phylogenetic and population genetic analyses.
Credit key: <10 points: 5; 10-11.9 points: 4; 12-14.9 points: 3; 15-17.9 points 2; 18-20 points: 1.
