The courses are free of charge to all GENECO students but are open to PhD students from any university to a course fee. The curriculum offers both introductory and specialized courses, as well as hands-on laboratory (wet or computer) and theoretical courses.

2017


Estimating signs of selection in genes and genomes - June 13-15, 2017, Lund

 


Intro to Bioinformatics using NGS data - 25-29 September 2017, Lund


Understanding Population Genetics, 23 - 27 October 2017

Population genetics with its many mathematical formulae provides perhaps the sharpest analytical tool in biological research. Its results are used everywhere, from evolutionary explanations to analyses of inherited diseases and many other applications. To really understand the strength of population genetics it is important to have worked through the most important derivations at least once. This course gives an introduction to the formal side of population genetics with the attempt to keep biological relevance in focus.
