Dear all,

The deadline for our courses at Laval University (Quebec City, Canada) this September has been extended to the 20th of August.

1) Speciation Genomics - 2-6 September 2019 -

Instructors: i) Dr. Mark Ravinet (Univeristy of Oslo, Norway); ii) Dr. Joana Meier (University of Cambridge, UK).

Overview: This course will provide a thorough introduction to the growing field of speciation genomics. The course aims to take students from the initial steps required for handling raw sequencing data to demographic modelling and inference of genome-wide signatures of selection and introgression. Through a combination of lectures covering key theoretical and conceptual topics, alongside hands-on exercises, participants will learn the most important computational approaches used in speciation genomics. This will include a heavy emphasis on data visualization and intepretation. After completing of the course, the participants should be able to begin using NGS data to shed light on the genomic aspects of speciation in their study system of choice.

2) GWAS - 9-13 September 2019 -

Instructors: i) Dr Filippo Biscarini (CNR, Italy); ii) Eric Normandeau (Laval University, Canada)

Overview: 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.

Here is the full list of our courses and Workshops:
