I am happy to confirm that I am going back to Czech Republic at the end of this month to a new workshop ☺ This time I am enrolled in the 2018 Workshop on Population and Speciation Genomics.
This workshop takes place from 21 January - 3 February (❄ ❄ ❄) at the UNESCO World Heritage Site Český Krumlov and it is organized by some of the best faculty members in the field of population and speciation genomics, such as Walter Salzburger, Michael Matschiner (University of Basel), David Swofford (Duke University) or Chris Jiggins (University of Cambridge) among many others. Interestingly, I already met David Swofford in last year's Workshop on Phylogenomics; plus I also attended a keynote given by Chris Jiggins in the 2017 Congress of the European Society for Evolutionary Biology.
By participating in this workshop I expect to become familiar with the use of genomic data to study the evolutionary history on the level of populations and closely related species. Even though during the two previous years of my PhD thesis I have definitely gained experienced in various sorts of genomics analyses, I think this workshop is a very good opportunity for me to understand demography inference approaches in detail, learning from some of the leading experts in the field. This two-week workshop will be the fifth one (and maybe the last one) in which I will participate during my PhD studies.
Český Krumlov is a charming fairy tail town; the perfect place for a science workshop. The food is super-tasty (not expensive at all) and hotel facilities are clean and comfortable. I am so excited to go back. Here some photos that I took last year:
Hi, I am Santi. This blog series was mainly created to include a summary of each of my publications. However, this blog is also a place where I will write about science and my life as researcher in the field of evolutionary biology.
