“Genetic diversity of marginal tree populations: from genomics to phenotypic variation”
13-19 June 2016, Novi Sad, Serbia
Cost Action FP1202 in collaboration with the Institute of Lowland Forestry and Environment, University of Novi Sad (Serbia) is organizing a Training School on “Genetic diversity of marginal tree populations: from genomics to phenotypic variation” at Hotel Ceptor-Andrevlje, Banoštor (Vojvodina, Serbia) on 13-16 June 2016.
The school will be focused on tree populations in Southern Europe (e.g. Balkan Peninsula), with special emphasis on broadleaved, relict and endemic species.
The training school will consist of a combination of lectures, practical exercises on analyses of phenotypic data obtained from common garden experiments and field visits.
The training school targets PhD students and other young scientists involved in on-going studies of genetics of forest tree species. MSc students can also benefit from the course if they already have some background knowledge in population genetics or quantitative genetics, and are working with genetic analysis of populations in their MSc thesis.
The call for application will be open until May 15, 2016. The selection of trainees will be done by May 22, 2016.
