The 3rd edition of the Physalia course on Comparative Genomics will be held ONLINE from the 21nd to the 25th of September: https://www.physalia-courses.org/courses-workshops/course34/
Instructors: Prof. Ingo Ebersberger (Goethe University Frankfurt, Germany) and Dr. Fritz J. Sedlazeck (Human Genome Sequencing Center at Baylor College of Medicine, USA).
This course will introduce biologists and bioinformaticians into the field of comparative genomics. We will cover a broad range of software and analysis workflows that extend over the spectrum from assembling and annotating small eukaryotic genomes, via the identification of single nucleotide variants (SNVs) and structural variants (SVs) within the population, to the assessment of their likely functional impact of the detected variants in an evolutionary context.
- Identification of SNPs and SVs using de novo genome assembly and read mapping strategies
- Assessment of strengths and weaknesses of the different DNA sequencing technologies, Illumina, Pacific Bioscience, Oxford Nanopore, for the detection of variations
- Strengths and pitfalls of de novo assembly and mapping approaches for comparative genomics
- Hands on experience of state of the art methods to compare multiple genomes
- Annotation of variations and comparative genomics analysis
- Familiarity with biological sequence analysis in an evolutionary context
Other upcoming Physalia courses will be also held online: https://www.physalia-courses.org/courses-workshops/
