Short description: During course realisation, student will gain knowledge about new bioinformatic methods used for ex-situ populations management
Full description: Course content: Ex situconservation and its importance in species conservation plan, variability in the population held in captivity, tools to characterize the population in terms of genetic diversity, the use of bioinformatics tools in the protection of animals.
Bibliography: Frankham i in. (2010) Introduction to conservation genetics. Cambridge University Press; 2nd edition
Learning outcomes: Knowledge: W1 - student knows the definition of genetic biodiversity and understand its relevance to the protection of species BI2_W08_TP, W2 - student defines the concepts relating to ex situ conservation, including basic indicators and parameters characterizing the captive breeding population BI2_W08_TP, W3 - student is able to make the characteristics of the elements that have a significant impact on the maintenance of ex situ populations and understands their importance from the species protection point of view BI2_W08_TP Skills: U1 - student is able to characterize the ex situ population in terms of indicators of variability based on DNA and pedigrees BI2-U05, BI2- U06, BI2_U07_TP, BI2_U08_TP, U2 - student is able to analyze the population biodiversity indicators and on their basis to formulate proposals for measures to be taken in a given population[ BI2-U05, BI2- U06, BI2_U07_TP, BI2_U08_TP, Social competences: , ,
