Dear all,


happy to inform you that we will run  the 4th edition of our Workshop 
"Introductory Population Genomics: From Data to Inference" in Berlin.


When: 13-17 May 2019



Dr. Martin Taylor (University of East Anglia, UK)


 Dr. Lewis Spurgin (University of East Anglia, UK)










Course Overview


Next generation sequencing has revolutionized evolutionary biology allowing 
unprecedented resolution and insight into evolutionary questions that appeared 
intractable only a few years ago. The course will cover the basics of 
population genomic analysis from SNP data onwards and will cover the key 
analyses that may be required to successfully analyze a population genetic data 
set. The course will NOT cover steps prior to generation of a .vcf file or SNP 
data set such as NGS data demultiplexing, clustering and SNP calling (This is 
covered in detail in the Introduction to RADseq course). This course will 
introduce Linux and the command line environment, basic perl and python usage, 
file conversions and manipulation, population structure and differentiation in 
R, outlier analysis, landscape / seascape genomics and introgression. Having 
completed the course, students should have a good understanding of the software 
and methods available for population genomic analysis and be competent in 
population genomic analysis.


Targeted audience & ASSUMED BACKGROUND


This workshop is aimed at postgraduate students and early career researchers 
who are interested in using population genomic tools in their research. No 
previous experience of bioinformatics is required, but an underpinning in 
evolutionary biology and basic population genetics concepts such as Hardy 
Weinberg Equilibrium and FST are desirable. The course will use a range of 
software including the Linux operating system and R.





The workshop is delivered over ten half-day sessions (see the detailed 
curriculum below). Each session consists of a combination of lectures and 
practical exercises, with breaks at the organisers’ discretion. There will also 
be time for students to discuss their own problems and data.
