From September 1 to October 5 2016, the interdisciplinary doctoral program “Vienna Graduate School of Population Genetics“ runs its yearly introductory course for the new cohort of PhD students attracting national and an increasing number of international participants since its start. The doctoral program is hosted by the Institute of Population Genetics at Vetmeduni Vienna and funded by the Austrian Science Fond (FWF).

The introductory course in population genetics is taught by experts of Vetmeduni Vienna. The topics span from basic and advanced concepts of population genetics, statistics, and biomathematics to fruit fly genetics, phylogenetics and bioinformatics. This years‘ new schedule additionally allows participants to actively engage in challenging topics and problems of modern population genetics.
Within the last years, young researchers from eleven European countries as well as PhD students from Russia, New Zealand, Brasil and Mexico were accepted to join the training. Aside of learning and gaining knowledge, friendships as well as collaborations have resulted from the course. Participants from other PhD- excellence programs, as the Marie Curie Innovative Training Network (INT) by the European Commission, can equally benefit from this networking. The same applies to three early stage researchers of the “Breeding Invertebrates for Next Generation BioControl Training Network (BINGO), who participate at this years’ course, along with students from German, Portuguese and Greek PhD programs.
