Efekty kształcenia:

Knowledge:

Students:

• Know the most important molecular methods used in ecological and evolutionary research

• Understand the theoretical basis of analytical methods used for inferring biological processes from the patterns of molecular variation

• Understand the strengths and limitations of the various classes of molecular markers


Skills:

Students:

• Can select an appropriate molecular methods/markers to address a given ecological/evolutionary problem

• Are able to interpret the patterns of variation seen in molecular data obtained from population samples

• Are able to find the information relevant to the studied biological problem in databases of biological sequences

• Have basic knowledge of software packages used for the analysis of molecular data obtained from population samples


Social competence:

• Recognize unique position that molecular methods play in modern evolutionary and ecological research and in conservation

• Appreciate the role of molecular methods, particularly noninvasive, in practical conservation

• Are able to communicate to non-scientific community the benefits of using molecular methods for solving practical problems in ecology and conservation


Forma i warunki zaliczenia:

Students have to attend at least 80% of laboratory/computer classes

Before sitting to the final test students have to pass the test checking their progress during practicals. The pass threshold will be 50% +1 correct answer

Final test - 50%+1 correct answers required to pass

Metody sprawdzania i kryteria oceny efektów kształcenia uzyskanych przez studentów:

• The outcome of the laboratory classess will be evaluated by checking the results of the experiments
