The Research School in Biosystematics – ForBio invites you to the University of Gothenburg and ForBio workshop: Target capture for NGS sequencing
This workshop will cover the methodology currently in use for generating DNA sequence data from multiple loci and individuals. It will cover all steps from design of probes to phasing of alleles. Emphasis will be put on basic understanding of the whole procedure, which pitfalls there may be, and demonstration of the use of software for different assembly, mapping, and phasing steps.
The format of this course requires students to have the specific objective of using these methods in their research, and students with PhD projects that include target capture will be prioritized.
Course teachers are: Isabel Liberal, Tobias Hofmann, Mats Töpel, Patrik Cangren
Credits: A 2 ECTS course certificate will be given to students that pass the course, either by GU or ForBio depending on their registration.
Time and place: Mar 21, 2016 – Mar 24, 2016, Botanhuset, Göteborg
Application deadline: March 1, 2016.
