Tentative lecture plan:
1.Introduction to genomics
2.Recombination and linkage disequilibrium
3.From mutations to gene editing
4.Genome-wide association studies and selection signatures
5.Genomics in animal breeding, genomic selection
6.Genomic inbreeding and admixture
7.From proteins to gene inheritance
8.Gene interactions
9.Structural variations in the genome
10.Whole-genome sequencing

12.Practical use of genomic data

Objective (expected results of study and acquired competences)

Upon positive completion of this course, the students will be able to describe the applications of single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) data in animal breeding and genetics. Students will understand the various applications of the genomic data in the current scientific literature and will be able to correctly interpret the results.
