Genomics of adaptation and speciation
How does a new species arise?
With the recent advances in -omics technologies and the ability to sequence complete genomes, characterize full transcriptomes or metabolomes, we have never been as close to the answer as now. This course will cover up-to-date theoretical aspects of adaptation, speciation and hybridization barriers in animals and plants, as well as the modern approaches to address these questions. Students will have hands-on practical classes involving state-of-the-art genomic analyses applied to the topics of speciation and adaptation. To meet the demands of modern science, the course will be taught exclusively in English.
