The course is aimed at providing bases in the three major areas of genetics ¿ transmission genetics, molecular genetics and population genetics ¿ as a starting point to understand classical and biotechnological breeding approaches, which will be briefly introduced.
Expected learning outcomes
Students will acquire: 1) tools for genetic data analysis and interpretation; 2) basic statistical approaches for formulation and validation of genetic models; 3) ability to understand the relationship between genotype and phenotype as a basis for breeding programmes.
