Teaches – Landscape (population) genetic data analysis using R

Rodney is an applied population geneticist his research is focused on gene flow spanning temporal and spatial scales from mapping pollinator movement during single mating event to uncovering shared spatial patterns of species movement during the current interglacial.  His work combines GIS, spatial modeling, and graph theory, and population genetic theory to characterize how intervening landscape structure modifies patterns of genetic connectivity.

Course Overview: The term ‘landscape genetics’ has been applied studies that integrate ecological context and intervening landscape into population genetic analyses of contemporary processes such as gene flow and migration.  This course will cover the basics of both quantitative landscape ecology and population genetics, focusing on how we develop and evaluate spatial/genetic analyses using the R platform. Intended Audience This course is suitable for graduate students, postdoctoral researchers, and primary investigators interested in learning how to integrate landscape ecological and…
