Evolutionary genetics is central to a wide range of biological questions, and is expanding dramatically with the flood of DNA sequence data. This intensive four-day course will give a thorough introduction to the subject, showing its broad scope, and teaching a variety of techniques that can be used to model the evolutionary process, and that can be applied to diverse problems in evolutionary biology.
The course is aimed at graduate students from diverse backgrounds - both in evolutionary biology, and coming in from different fields.
Teaching will be a combination of lectures, discussion groups, and worked examples.
