- Mapping of single genes and markers, - Mapping of Quantitative Trait Loci (QTL), - Fine scale mapping of QTL based on linkage disequilibrium, - Marker assisted selection, - Genomic selection.
Students can describe: (i) alternative methods and experimental designs for the mapping of genes and QTL, (ii) alternative methods for the genomic prediction of genetic values of individuals, (iii) alternative methods for the analysis of (RNA) sequence data.
Students can (fine-scale) map genes and QTL, predict genomic breeding values, and analyse (RNA) sequence data.
The students should develop analytical approaches to statistical designs for QTL mapping, gene expression data analyses, and genomic data analyses. The students should acquire sufficient knowledge to recognize the mechanics of softwares developed for the afore mentioned analyses, and be able to follow more advanced courses in these fields.
Lectures and practical computer exercises. Computer-supported learning is used during the computer exercises.
The student's learning is supported through tutoring, practical exercises, and plenary discussions.
The course is based upon lecture notes.
All independent assignments.
Final oral examination. Grading A-F
