Efekty kształcenia:

Knowledge:

PhD students:

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

- Understand the theoretical basis of analytical methods used for inferring ecological and evolutionary processes from the patterns of molecular variation

- Understand the strengths and limitations of the various types of molecular markers

Skills:

PhD students:

- Can select appropriate molecular methods/markers to address a given ecological/evolutionary question

- 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 in ecological and evolutionary studies

- Critically select, read and understand primary ecological and evolutionary literature which utilizes molecular methods


Social competence:

PhD students:

- Recognize unique position that molecular methods hold in modern evolutionary and ecological research

- Appreciate the role and practical application of molecular methods in conservation biology

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


Wymagania wstępne:

Completed course in genetics.

Completed course in population or evolutionary genetics would be of benefit but is not required.
