Phylogeography is one of the recent scientific areas emergent from the dissemination of highthrouput technologies of sequencing starting in the 90’s of the XXth century, with the consequent development of intra-specific genetic variance analysis and its geographic distribution. The analysis of phylogeographic data allows to study the processes of population differentiation and the underlying evolutionary and demographic history. Applications of this body of knowledge go from conservation genetics to the study of the evolution of species and populations. This course is aimed at students and professionals that intend to get started on phylogeographic analysis as well as researchers already with some experience that want to deepen or update their knowledge in the field. The course involves theoretical classes as well as hands-on practical sessions using software. Participants are encouraged to bring their own sequence data for analysis.
