Molecular Methods in Ecology and Evolution

Date: 27 November 2017 - 27 January 2018
Location: Groningen University

Molecular methods are now widely used in ecological and evolutionary studies, to answer questions ranging from the evolutionary history of populations to patterns in community ecology. How can we use these molecular tools to enhance our knowledge of population genetics, phylogeny, molecular and adaptive variation, and community structure?

The objective of this course is to introduce students to a range of molecular techniques (DNA, RNA and protein- based) that are applied in ecological and evolutionary research. We will teach ‘how’ these techniques are properly applied, as well as their potential and limitations. In the first part of the course, students will learn through a hands-on wet and dry laboratory training a range of methods and their respective laboratory protocols. During the second part, students will apply these molecular techniques to carry out independent research projects.
