Physalia-courses in collaboration with Laval University (Quebec, Canada) is organizing two courses (1 - Speciation Genomics; 2- Introduction to GWAS) in Canada this September.
2nd course: Introduction to genome-wide association studies (GWAS)!
Where: Laval University
Quebec City , Canada
When: 9-13 September
1 - Dr. Filippo Biscarini (Italian National Research Council)
2- Eric Normandeau (Laval University, Canada)
This course will introduce students, researchers and professionals to the steps needed to build an analysis pipeline for Genome-Wide Association Studies (GWAS). The course will, on one hand, describe all the necessary steps involved in a typical GWAS study; on the other hand, we will build a reusable and reproducible GWAS pipeline.
TARGET AUDIENCE & ASSUMED BACKGROUND
The course is aimed at students, researchers and professionals interested in learning how to build a structured pipeline for semi-automated and reproducibile GWAS analyses. It will include information useful for both beginners and more advanced users. We will start by introducing general concepts of GWAS and bioinformatics pipeline building, progressively describing all steps and putting there seamlessy together in a general workflow. Attendees should have a background in biology, specifically genetics; previous exposure to GWAS experiments would also be beneficial.
