Dates: online, June, 5th-8th
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 describe all the necessary steps involved in a typical GWAS study, which will then be used to build a reusable and reproducible bioinformatics pipeline.
TARGETED AUDIENCE & ASSUMED BACKGROUND
The course is aimed at students, researchers and professionals interested in learning the different steps involved in a GWAS study and using them to build a structured pipeline for semi-automated and reproducible 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 seamlessly together in a general workflow. Attendees should have a background in biology, specifically genetics; previous exposure to GWAS experiments would also be beneficial. There will be a mix of lectures and hands-on practical exercises using R, Linux command line and custom software. Some basic understanding of R programming and Unix will be advantageous. Attendees should also have some basic familiarity with genomic data such as those arising from NGS experiments.
