What is the course Ecological and Evolutionary Genomics about? Course aims You have a sound insight in the application of genomic/bioinformatic tools to address ecological and evolutionary questions. You rely on complementary scientific disciplines (such as biochemistry and genomical statistics) and biological subdisciplines (such as physiology and molecular biology). You are able to consult genomic databases, to use and analyse large date sets, and to interpret results critically. You handle the international appropriate professional literature on ecological and evolutionary genomics critically, and tackle new complex challenges independently. You use advanced knowledge of theories and models, concepts and processes to

work on complex genomic data. You communicate your findings based on the literature written and orally in English, and can work in team. You remain up to date on the latest international developments and methods. RIA2 - 10.04.2018 Master programme Master Biologie/Biology Inleiding ecologie en evolutie (ba1) Ecologie (ba2)

Molecular identification I borrowed a ready-made lecture from a colleague-expert (prof. Simon Creer, Univ. Bangor, UK) Linked to research expertise in our team Possibility for input from small student groups: during class students look up a suitable reference and we discuss in class. Generates great interest (food authentication, species ID, tracing

scat, and so on).
