Population Genetics Seminar and Journal Club (Kolloqium in Populationsgenetik) Teaching module: 10854-FS2015-0

Local or invited speakers present their work or reviews of a particular topic in the field of Population Genetics. Journal club sessions are integrated into the seminar, and attending students are required to read the papers in advance before each session. PDFs of the papers are accessible through the ILIAS system.

  • Time: unless specified otherwise, every Monday, at 11:15
  • Place: seminar room C159, IZB, Baltzerstr. 4, first floor
  • Contact: Laurent Excoffier
