The Research School in Biosystematics – ForBio – invites to the course “Introduction to RADseq bioinformatics”.
The course will take place October 7-11, 2013 at the the Natural History Museum and the Centre for Ecological and Evolutionary Synthesis, University of Oslo.
Restriction site Associated DNA (RAD) sequencing, along with advances in sequencing technology, is making it feasible to obtain genome scale data not only from model organisms, but also from species without available genomic resources. The course will introduce the participants to Stacks, a bioinformatic pipeline for analyzing RADseq data, and how to extract data for further analyzes.
Application deadline: September 11, 2013.
More information about the course and how to apply can be found at www.forbio.uio.no/events/courses/2013/radseqII.html
The course is arranged by the Research school in biosystematics – ForBio. There is no course fee, and PhD students and postdocs registered at Norwegian, Danish, or Swedish universities can become ForBio members and will then have travel and accommodation costs covered.
