The goal for this workshop is to teach graduate students, postdocs and researchers contemporary methods in landscape genomics with examples from and applications to forest tree populations. The curriculum will be delivered over three full days. Morning sessions will consist of lectures given by course instructors on the underlying theory and methodology of landscape genomics. Late morning sessions will be dedicated to students presentations. Afternoon sessions will consist of hands-on computer exercises using population genomics and landscape genomics software applications with real forest tree datasets. A late afternoon session will be devoted to seminar presentations by invited speakers Aitken and St.Clair on their respective research programs that focus on genomics of adaptation and forest tree response to climate change.
