Teacher: dr. Tomislav Domazet-Lošo, associate professor
To train students in essential concepts of genome dynamics and provide them with basic skills to use large scale genomic data for macroevolutionary reconstruction.
- To understand, interpret and analyse models of genome evolution.
- To understand phylostratigraphy principles and corresponding computational issues.
- To apply evolutionary principles to the development of organs and the evolution of tumours.
- Models of genome evolution – origin of the new genes and life cycle of genes.
- Phylostratigraphy – basic principles of the approach and computational challenges.
- Macroevolutionary analysis of transcriptomes and proteomes – expression data in macroevolutionary studies.
- Evolution of multicellularity – molecular approaches.
- Macroevolution of tumours – from the large-scale tumour data to the macroevolutionary origin of tumours.
- Evolution of brain – how to trace evolutionary origin of our brains?
- Evolution of molecular complexity – does evolution increases complexity?
