    Description This course gives a through introduction to population genetics. Population genetics describes how the frequency of genetic variation changes through space and time. For this mathematical and statistical models are developed that describe the effects of mutation, genetic drift, migration and selection. The models then allow us to detect and quantify evolutionary processes in natural populations.
    Training objectives Students will understand the basic principles of population genetics including the effects of mutation, genetic drift and selection. They will be able to put these processes into mathematical models and apply these to genetic data. They will further be able to formulate expectations from such models for how the genetic diversity of a population is going to change under different evolutionary conditions. Finally, they will understand what the genetic data observed today tells us about the evolutionary past of a species and how population genetic models can be used to quantify this evolutionary past.
