The field of molecular ecology examines relationships among genotypes, phenotypes and the environment to explain evolution and diversity of organisms. The lecture will introduce basics in genomics, molecular evolution and population genetics to explore properties of the genome and the organism from an evolutionary perspective. Central aspects are the adaptation of species to their environment and ecological change, speciation, the genetic basis of phenotypic change. Methods and data used in genomics and molecular ecology will be introduced during the lecture and exercises.
