It is essential that students remain connected for the whole length of the course, partial attendance will not be considered.
Registration includes access to:
- all lectures and practical sessions
- online group discussions
- poster sessions
- research clinics
- all course materials
Successful participants will be sent payment details by email.
Selection of participants will be based on:
- Solid background in evolutionary genetics, since the course is advanced.
- Good knowledge of Linux operating system and basic shell commands. This will be a mandatory prerequisite.
- Lack of previous knowledge on the population genomics tools presented in the course.
- Stage of the research project: priority will be given to participants with data already available and ready to be analyzed (Participants data will not be analyzed during the course).
- Impact of the course for the participant and his/her research group.
- Submission of an Abstract
Fulfillment of these conditions by participants will be assessed through the registration form.
Ph.D. students and Post-Docs will be favored, and applications from other researchers will be considered in their context. Applications from the same group will be discouraged.
Applications without an abstract will not be considered.
Abstract guidelines: max 200 words.
Abstracts can be submitted in the registration system after registration.
Abstracts should describe participants’ research projects to be presented with a poster and a 2 min video.
PDF format, vertical, maximum dimensions 70 cm width x 100 cm height (max 10 MB) and in JPEG 700x1000 pixels, 300 dpi.
The selected participants will be asked to submit a short video of max 2 minutes (16:9 horizontal) as mp4, mov, flv, avi or wmw file.
