  • Comparative Genomics Course.Last Call

    Dear all,



    we have the last places available for our course on "Comparative Genomics" (1-5 October 2018) at the Freie Universität Berlin, Königin-Luise-Straße 6-8, Berlin (Germany).



    Application deadline is September 5th, 2018. Attendees are seated on a first-come, first-served basis.









    Our instructors are :








    Dr Fritz J. Sedlazeck (https://fritzsedlazeck.github.io/)

    Prof. Dr. Ingo Ebersberger (https://scholar.google.com/citations...3kYAAAAJ&hl=en)




    Course overview


    This course will introduce biologists and bioinformaticians into the field of comparative genomics. Different techniques will be introduced to identify single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) and structural variations (SVs) as well as the annotation of these variations and the assessment for their functional impact.



    TARGETED AUDIENCE & ASSUMED BACKGROUND

    The course is aimed at researchers interested in learning how to compare genomes and what can be learned from genomic similarities as well as variations. It will include information useful for both beginners and more advanced users. We will start by introducing general concepts of comparative genomics. On this basis, we will then continue to describe all major analysis steps from the raw sequencing data via the identification of variations to an assessment of their impact on the phenotype.

    Attendees should have a background in biology. There will be a mix of lectures and hands-on practical exercises using command line Linux. We will therefore dedicate one session to introduce basic and advanced Linux concepts for processing data on Amazon cloud (AWS). Attendees should have also some familiarity with genomic data such as that arising from NGS sequencing experiments.



    LEARNING OUTCOMES



    Identification of SNPs and SVs using de novo genome assembly and read mapping strategies
    Assessment of strengths and weaknesses of the different DNA sequencing technologies, Illumina, Pacific Bioscience, Oxford Nanopore, for the detection of variations
    Strengths and pitfalls of de novo assembly and mapping approaches for comparative genomics
    Hands on experience of state of the art methods to compare multiple genomes
    Annotation of variations and comparative genomics analysis

    Exploring the Dynamics of the Tumor Microenvironment
    by seqadmin




    The complexity of cancer is clearly demonstrated in the diverse ecosystem of the tumor microenvironment (TME). The TME is made up of numerous cell types and its development begins with the changes that happen during oncogenesis. “Genomic mutations, copy number changes, epigenetic alterations, and alternative gene expression occur to varying degrees within the affected tumor cells,” explained Andrea O’Hara, Ph.D., Strategic Technical Specialist at Azenta. “As...

    Exploring Human Diversity Through Large-Scale Omics
    by seqadmin


    In 2003, researchers from the Human Genome Project (HGP) announced the most comprehensive genome to date1. Although the genome wasn’t fully completed until nearly 20 years later2, numerous large-scale projects, such as the International HapMap Project and 1000 Genomes Project, continued the HGP's work, capturing extensive variation and genomic diversity within humans. Recently, newer initiatives have significantly increased in scale and expanded beyond genomics, offering a more detailed...
