Courses & Workshops

GENECO courses are generally one week long and are given at the Department of Biology at Lund University. The courses are free of charge to all GENECO students but are open to PhD students from any university subject to a course fee. The curriculum offers both introductory and specialized courses, as well as hands-on laboratory (wet or computer) and theoretical courses. Geneco will cover the course fee for their students on a number of other courses, such as the NBIS courses listed below. Furthermore, we are willing to consider covering the fee for courses that fall within the general remit of genomic ecology, or are relevant to the specific genetic techniques used by a student within their PhD project. Please make enquiries about these courses directly to us: emily [dot] oconnor [at] biol [dot] lu [dot] se or olof [dot] hellgren [at] biol [dot] lu [dot] se

Autumn 2019

 

Understanding Population Genetics, Lund, 14-18 October 2019

 

Molecular Phylogenetics Course (November 2019 - 3 days, exact dates tbc)

 

Led by Prof Niklas Wahlberg, Lund University

The aims of this course are to introduce the theory and practice of phylogenetic inference from molecular data

and to provide an introduction to some of the most used methods and computer programs. The emphasis will

be on model-based methods using maximum likelihood and Bayesian inference, with a focus on DNA sequences

as data. We will introduce programs such as RAxML, MrBayes, as well as BEAST for timing of divergence analyses. The course will consist of lectures, demonstrations of computer programs, and independent projects on fully analysing an example dataset (either your own or given by the lecturer).
