In this journal club we discuss papers covering population genomics, conservation genomics, archaeogenomics, palaeogenomics or other relevant related fields. Interdisciplinary studies are very welcome too. Papers can range from primary research articles, presentations of new methods or reviews/opinion pieces that may generate some discussion. Please subscribe to the mailing list to receive updates on upcoming papers that will be discussed.
We meet approximately every other Thursday at 12:30, initially digital but hopefully soon a combination of life and digital. During the meetings one person briefly summarises the paper in 5-10 min and we then have a 35ish min discussion. You are welcome to eat your lunch during the journal club.
This week we discuss a paper on genome skimming. The paper presents the potential for using low-coverage shotgun data for species identification, moving forward from more traditional barcoding approaches.
This week we discuss a paper on structural genomic variation. The study reports on resequencing of >1000 wild sunflowers and finds large non-recombining haplotype blocks that are associated with ecologically relevant traits and soil and climate characteristics.
We discuss how population genomics approaches can be applied to wildlife conservation and management.
