Day 0 – Introduction into R
Getting to grips with using R to similate diploid and polyploid populations

Day 1 – Population genetics with diploids and polyploids and in mixed situations
Genetic diversity, HW, analogues of F-statistics - Clustering analysis of simulated diploid and tetraploid pops


Day 2 – Estimating selfing rates in polyploids
Single vs. paired heterozygosity - Double reduction - Estimating selfing rates with mixed ploidy


Day 3 – ABC to analyse population genomic data
Model selection of evolutionary scenarios (polyploid origins and mode of inheritance)


Day 4 – Selection in diploids vs polyploids
Responses to selection, Selective sweeps, Rate of adaptation vs rate of fixation, Linked selection
