Default Workshop on Comparative Genomics, Europe 2011

Workshop on Comparative Genomics, Europe 2011

Cesky Krumlov, Czech Republic

9 - 21 January 2011

Application Deadline: 15 October is the preferred application deadline, after which time people will be admitted to the course following review of applications by the admissions committee. However, later applications will certainly be accepted.

Scott A. Handley, Michael Cummings and Dag Ahren, Co-Directors
Naiara Rodriquez-Ezpeleta, Associate Directors

The Workshop on Comparative Genomics consists of a series of lectures, demonstrations and computer laboratories that cover various aspects of comparative genomics focusing on next-generation sequencing data. Faculty are chosen exclusively for their effectiveness in teaching theory and practice in comparative genomics. Included among the faculty are developers and other experts in the use of computer programs and packages such as AUGUSTUS, Ensembl, GMOD/GBrowse, MEGAN, MIRA, and Scripture who provide demonstrations and consultations. The course is designed for established investigators, postdoctoral scholars, and advanced graduate students. Scientists with strong interests in the uses of short-read sequence data, analytical methods, comparative structure of genomes, SNP detection and analysis, genome visualization tools and related areas are encouraged to apply for admission. Lectures and computer laboratories total ~90 hours of scheduled instruction. Admission is limited and highly competitive, with admissions decisions determined by an international committee. No programming experience is required.

Topics to be covered include:

- Sequencing technologies: short-read sequencing technologies of various types
- Assembly and alignment: basic analyses in de novo and re-sequencing studies
- Gene finding and annotation: functional description of genomic data
- Genome characterization: gene content; genome structure; synteny; SNPs
- Assigning sequences to taxonomic groups in metagenomic studies
- Evolutionary genomics
- Population genomics

2010 Fee: 1800 USD. Fee includes opening reception and mid-course dinner, but does not include other meals or housing. Special discounted pricing has been arranged for hotels, pensions and hostels.

Offered in partnership with the Graduate Research School in Genomic Ecology (GENECO)

The Workshop on Molecular Evolution is also being offered immediately after the Workshop on Comparative Genomics.
