Registration is open for the course “INTRODUCTION TO GEOMETRIC MORPHOMETRICS
USING (MOSTLY) R”, August 13th-17th, 2018, Alberta (Canada).
Instructors: Dr Paula González (Unidad Ejecutora Estudios en Neurociencias y
Sistemas Complejos. CONICET-HEC-UNAJ, Argentina) and Dr David Katz (University
of Calgary, Canada).
This course is intended as an introduction to the major aspects of 2D and 3D
landmark-based shape analysis. While we will spend some time on shape theory
and mechanical aspects relevant statistical analyses, the goal of doing so will
be to develop your intuition for how to—and how not to—design and interpret
your geometric morphometrics research.
Students will learn the foundations of geometric morphometrics through lectures
and daily exercises. The exercises are designed around a mouse skull shape
sample from a controlled experiment with longitudinal design, though for most
exercises, students are welcome to work with their own data instead.
Students lacking a rudimentary understanding of R will be asked to complete a
short series of introductory exercises prior to attending the course. Most
analyses will be done in R, although we will also use Meshlab for landmarking
3D models, and tpsDig for 2D landmarking.
