CeMEB Advanced Course 2011:

Marine evolution - patterns and processes

International Course for PhD students, post docs and master students
(The course is now full)

21 - 25 November 2011, Tjärnö

Arrival day: 20th November
Departure day: 26th November

The marine environment enables most species to spread widely through floating or swimming propagules, larvae or juveniles, still many species show striking patterns of small-scale genetic structure and local adaptation. What are rules and what are exceptions? Are there differences between taxonomic or ecological entities? And at the genome level, are different genetic markers revealing the same pictures?

This is an international course for PhD students and postdocs to learn more about patterns and processes in marine evolution as well as learning about new methods in genetics and genomics.
