The school builds a doctoral program and trains graduate students in the broad area of population genetics.

The students are expected to take formal courses and carry out research work and complete a doctoral thesis in about four years.

The students entering the school should join a research project led by one of the supervisors that are members of the school.

The topics covered by different projects include evolutionary genetics, bioinformatics, genetic epidemiology, gene mapping, plant and animal breeding, conservation genetics, molecular anthropology and archaeology, and risks associated to GMO.

The working place depends on the research group and the supervisor.
