Population genetics inference with ‘Migrate’ (PGMG01) FREE ACCOMMODATION AVAILABLE

16th March 2020 - 20th March 2020

£275.00 - £570.00

Course Overview:

This 5-day course will cover population genetics data analysis using the software <i>Migrate</i>. Students will learn to operate the software to infer gene flow and population divergence model using sequence data and microsatellite marker data and compare and choose among different population genetics models. The course has two major components: a theoretical and a hands-on component where participants will use the software on their own computers. In the theoretical section, we will review coalescence theory and discuss concepts of genetic drift, gene flow and migration, population divergence estimation, Bayesian inference, Markov chain Monte Carlo methods, and Model selection. In the practical section, students will learn to operate the program, set options, define population models, compare these models, and also learn to assess whether the *migrate*-analyses were run sufficiently well to guarantee that the results are meaningful. 

 

Intended Audience

Research postgraduates, practicing academics and primary investigators in genetical ecology, biogeography, phylogenetics of closely related species, conservation genetics, spatial ecology, and management and environmental professionals in government and industry.
