Registrations are now open for the online Comparative Genomics course in February (12th-16th).
Course website: https://www.physalia-courses.org/courses-workshops/course34/
This course is designed to introduce biologists and bioinformaticians to the realm of comparative genomics. We will cover a wide spectrum of software and analysis workflows, from assembling and annotating small eukaryotic genomes to identifying single nucleotide variants (SNVs) and structural variants (SVs). You'll also learn to assess the functional impact of detected variants within an evolutionary context.
By the end of this course, you will achieve the following:
- Identification of SNPs and SVs through de novo genome assembly and read mapping strategies.
- Assessment of different DNA sequencing technologies (Illumina, Pacific Bioscience, Oxford Nanopore) for variation detection.
- Understanding the strengths and limitations of de novo assembly and mapping in comparative genomics.
- Hands-on experience with cutting-edge methods for comparing multiple genomes.
- Annotation of variations and conducting comparative genomics analysis.
- Proficiency in biological sequence analysis within an evolutionary context.
