The following courses are taught by members and/or cover key issues of the URPP Evolution:
Exciting new technologies are revolutionizing biology: ultra-high throughput sequencing, quantitative mass spectrometry-based proteomics, metabolomics, high-throughput automated microscopy, and more. In module BIO254, experts from each field teach two or three classes on their technology - describing applications, strengths and shortcomings, and how to assess and use the data produced.
This is a research seminar where students learn to present, discuss, and defend their own research projects and research results, as well as observations from the recent literature.
Participation in lab meeting of research group of Lukas Keller, presentation of own project or scientific problem during one of the meetings
Instructor: Lukas Keller
In this seminar series, participants (group members, invited guests, (volunteers) present aspects of their ongoing research, with emphasis on the application of advanced bioinformatics methods applied during their projects. The seminar series also provides opportunities for presentations by visitors and „hot topic" discussions.
Instructor: Simon Aeschbacher
The Zürich Interaction Seminar (ZIS) provides an informal and engaging environment for graduate students (MSc and PhD) to discuss current research in ecology and evolutionary biology. Each 20–40 minute talk reviews exciting developments in a research field or highlights the presenter's current work. Discussions and networking opportunities foster connections within Zürich's ecology and evolution research community. The seminar is jointly hosted by University of Zürich and ETH Zürich, students from both institutions are encouraged to participate.
