LANDSCAPE GENOMICS WORKSHOP

6 01 2011

I will be attending a short course / workshop between 24th and 26th January 2011. The short course is called the NEXTGEN LANDSCAPE GENOMICS SHORT COURSE.

NEXTGEN is a consortium which is an EU-funded collaborative research initiative in the area of landscape genomics in cattle, sheep and goats using whole genome data.  Read more about it

The short course is part of NEXTGEN’s capacity building.  Topics that will be taught include Livestock diversity and husbandry practices, population structure and evolution of Africa’s large mammals, diagnostics of genetic defects in livestock, basic concepts in conservation genetics, Mitochondrial DNA and methods of analysis, Nuclear markers and methods of analysis, Modern and upcoming technologies for genome analysis, Basic concepts in bioinformatics, Selection signatures, the domestication process, ethics/biorepository strategies, Geographic Information systems and landscape genomics

Here’s the schedule of the 3 day workshop;
