Evolutionary Genetics Workshop

Evolutionary Genetics Workshop September 20 to September 23, 2011, held at IST Austria – a joint initiative of IST Austria and the Vienna Graduate School of Population Genetics

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.

The course is aimed at graduate students with diverse backgrounds -
both in evolutionary biology, and coming in from different fields.
Teaching will be a combination of lectures, discussion groups, and
worked examples; simulation software will be provided.
