Content may vary according to years





Every day, 2 speakers will present two aspects of the same subject. Lectures will start by a broad introduction, and raise up to the most recent research developments. A particular attention will be given to the synergy between the presentations so that to enrich the discussion afterwards. A round table will take place at the end of the day, offering the students an opportunity to interact freely with these specialists of the field.



Note: Some of the objectives will be worked on more deeply depending on the exact list of topics covered this year.

  • Introduction to current topics in functional and evolutionary genomics

  • Learning how to grasp a new theme rapidely, and make links with other themes.

  • Learn how to write a synthesis based on different presentation.

  • Be critical on modelling and their results (statistics, possible bias and confunding effects etc)

  • Ask questions in English, interact in a positive manner with speakers and fellow students. Work in groups and in a constructive manner, so that even shy student may express themselves.

  • Start to build up a network, since half the audience do not come from ENS de Lyon, and some from other countries (this may not apply in corona times).
