Default Speciation Genomics course in Berlin

Dear all,

last places left on our Speciation Genomics course with Dr. Mark Ravinet (University of Nottingham, UK) and Dr. Joana I. Meier (University of Cambridge, UK) :

Registration deadline: 25th of Janaury 2020

Free University (FU) Berlin (Germany), 24-28 February 2020

This course will provide a thorough introduction to the growing field of speciation genomics. The course aims to take students from the initial steps required for handling raw sequencing data to demographic modelling and inference of genome-wide signatures of selection and introgression. Through a combination of lectures covering key theoretical and conceptual topics, alongside hands-on exercises, participants will learn the most important computational approaches used in speciation genomics. This will include a heavy emphasis on data visualization and intepretation. After completing of the course, the participants should be able to begin using NGS data to shed light on the genomic aspects of speciation in their study system of choice.

Learning Outcomes

Handling NGS data from raw reads to genetic variants

Applying basic population genetic statistics

Visualizing the genetic structure

Inferring demographic history

Identifying regions under divergent selection or barriers to gene flow

Understanding the potential and limitations of different methods to detect regions under selection

Good course. After studying it, I was able to solve a case study without any problems, which became decisive at the exam. I recommend studying it to everyone who studies at the Faculty of Speciation Genomics.

Has anyone already taken this course? I am afraid that these courses will be too difficult for me. Last year I was taking courses on cancer epigenomics, and it was hell. It was only thanks to that I did all my essays on time. I hope this course will be undemanding, or otherwise, I will not be able to finish it.
