Introduction to Genomic data analysis using HapMap and 1000 genomes projects - Second edition
Instructors: Dr. Marc Via (University of Barcelona, Spain) and Robert Carreras-Torres (University of Barcelona, Spain).
Site: Premises of Sabadell of the Institut Catalá de Paleontologia Miquel Crusafont (Bercelona, Spain).
The course is entitled to teach the main concepts of genomic data analysis using real data from the two most important international projects: The HapMap and the 1000 Genomes Projects. In this course you will get familiar with the data arising from these two projects and learn how to use it alone or in combination with other datasets to answer genetic, demographic and evolutionary questions. The course will alternate theory with practical computer exercises but it will focus on hands-on training. Although examples will be based on single-nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) data in human individuals, most topics covered in this course can be extended to other types of markers and organisms. Basic use of the R statistical package and command-line based environments will be introduced in the course and previous knowledge is not required.
This course will be held in the Sabadell facilities of the Institut Català de Paleontologia (Barcelona, Spain) and is co-organized by Transmitting Science and the Institut Catalá de Paleontologia M. Crusafont. Place are limited and will be covered by strict registration order.
