Dear all,

We are excited to announce that registrations are open for the 3rd edition of our course on "Model-Based Demographic Inference from Population Genomics" scheduled from May 27th to May 31st, 2024. To accommodate international participation, the course will be conducted online.

Course website:

This course will delve into inferring demographic models from genomic datasets, focusing on both model and non-model organisms. Participants will gain hands-on experience in using single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) and the site-frequency spectrum (SFS) to estimate demographic parameters such as divergence times and effective population sizes. Theoretical lectures will be complemented by practical exercises using simulated and real data.

This course is designed for graduate students, postdocs, and researchers interested in population genomics and statistical inference. While a basic understanding of population genetics is recommended, no prior programming experience is necessary. However, participants are encouraged to familiarize themselves with R and UNIX-based command lines before the course.
