The course focuses on how to analyze data on genetic structures developed as results of the interplay between local adaption (response to selection), genetic drift and gene flow.
* Landscape genetics
* Analysis of spatial genetic structures at the landscape level based on SSR DNA marker
*Quantitative genetics of fitness traits
*Analysis of genetic variation in adaptive traits adaptive potential based on common gardens trials and provenance test.
* Comparison of findings from marker based studies with findings from quantitative genetic studies and implications for genetic conservation and management in relation to climate change
The course targets PhD students involved in on-going studies of genetics of woody plant species and shall provide the theoretical framework as well as practical experience with analysis of field data from common garden trials. The students should also become familiar with design and assessment of common gardens trials.
