Dear all,

Registrations are now open for the 2nd edition of the course" Population Genomics Using Ancient DNA Data ".

Dates: (Online) 8th-12th January 2024

Course website:

Our course will delve into the methods and techniques for generating and analyzing ancient DNA (aDNA) data, with a primary focus on eukaryote genomes, which boasts a wealth of publicly available aDNA data.

This course combines in-depth lectures with hands-on exercises, providing a comprehensive understanding of population genomic research using aDNA. The practical exercises will be conducted in a Linux environment, and data visualization will be performed using RStudio.

It is tailored for graduate students and researchers in genetics, ecology, and anthropology who wish to harness the power of aDNA data in population genetics research. While the course examples primarily focus on humans, the methods discussed are applicable to researchers studying other organisms with available aDNA data.

Course Schedule (Berlin Time):

  • Monday: Data processing and authentication
  • Tuesday: Population structure and relatedness
  • Wednesday: Introduction to the coalescent theory; D and F statistics
  • Thursday: Demographic inference
  • Friday: Simulations; Natural selection
