Ecological genomics studies ecological complexity, nutrient cycles, life-history patterns and responses of organisms to environmental stress at the genomic level. Analysis of environmental genomes will improve our understanding of ecosystem functions and biodiversity and may help to define and measure environmental quality. In addition, we assess the role of genetic drift and selection on patterns of genome evolution.
This course is intended for those just embarking on genomics within an ecological setting and teaches the fundamentals of the discipline, while concentrating on ecological questions. The course focuses on four topics, each of which is treated by lectures, practical assignments, case studies and participant presentations. Also, participants are encouraged to apply the principles of the course to their own research. To introduce their own work participants are asked to bring and present a research poster.
We have speakers on microbes, fungi, plant and animals, but the concepts taught are universal and many will be applicable to your own species of interest.
The four topics are:
Introductory lectures, case studies, poster presentations, computer practicals
Day 1: Introductory lectures to the course, population genomics lectures, participant poster session with drinks and bites
Day 2: Comparative genomics lectures, population and comparative genomics practical
Day 3: Metagenomics lectures and practical
Day 4: Functional genomics lectures and assignment
The programme will be updated as the guest lectures are confirmed.
