An introduction to conservation genetics

Presented by Most of us are familiar with the Hardy-Weinberg equilibrium but what does it really mean and why is it so relevant to conservation genetics? We will focus on the role of biological processes like mutation, migration, random drift and selection on populations. This session will introduce participants to this fundamental aspect in conservation genetics through games and discussionsMain aims and goal: To familiarise participants with the fundamentals of conservation genetics  Participants will have a clearer understanding of the processes that drive genetic patterns and will be equipped to ask basic questions and interpret results from their work. Target audience:Anyone who has an interest in conservation genetics and those who plan to use molecular tools in their research. Workshop organisers:Shomita Mukherjee and Subhankar Chakraborty, and Vishnupriya Kollipakam
