ForBio course: Introduction to RADseq

The Research School in Biosystematics – ForBio – invites to the lab course
”Introduction to RADseq”

Restriction site Associated DNA (RAD) has recently made it possible to obtain
genome scale sequence data not only from model organisms, but also from species
without available genomic resources. RADseq techniques can be used to
address questions in a wide range of applications in biosystematics such as SNP
discovery and genotyping, genotype-phenotype association mapping, linkage
mapping, QTL analysis, hybridization and gene flow analysis, and population
genetics. More recently, RADseq data has also been used to address problems in
phylogeographic and phylogenetic studies by utilizing information from linked
SNPs in “mini-contigs” obtained from paired end sequencing. This is a
flexible method for people looking to work on both model and non-model

The course will take place June 3-7, 2013 and use the RADseq platform at
Blindern, University of Oslo, Norway.

Application deadline is May 5, 2013.

More information about the course and how to apply can be found at

The course is arranged by the Research school in biosystematics – ForBio. There
is no course fee, and PhD students/postdocs registered at Swedish, Danish, or
Norwegian universities can become ForBio members and will then have travel and
accomodation costs covered by ForBio. For information about ForBio and
membership etc, please see

More information about ticket refunds etc will be sent out after the
application deadline.
