  • Speciation Genomics course in Berlin

    Dear all,

    last places left on our Speciation Genomics course with Dr. Mark Ravinet (University of Nottingham, UK) and Dr. Joana I. Meier (University of Cambridge, UK) :


    Registration deadline: 25th of Janaury 2020

    Free University (FU) Berlin (Germany), 24-28 February 2020

    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.

    Learning Outcomes

    Handling NGS data from raw reads to genetic variants

    Applying basic population genetic statistics

    Visualizing the genetic structure

    Inferring demographic history

    Identifying regions under divergent selection or barriers to gene flow

    Understanding the potential and limitations of different methods to detect regions under selection

    Good course. After studying it, I was able to solve a case study without any problems, which became decisive at the exam. I recommend studying it to everyone who studies at the Faculty of Speciation Genomics.

      I'm really impressed with the German Education System especially for the foreigners as they don't charge any fee for it even it's not a developed country like the USA and Canada. In our country, there are too many taxes on the home security stores especially for the fob cloning experts rents, maintenance, and taxes making our life difficult on a daily.

        A Brief Overview and Common Challenges in Single-cell Sequencing Analysis
        by seqadmin

        ​​​​​​The introduction of single-cell sequencing has advanced the ability to study cell-to-cell heterogeneity. Its use has improved our understanding of somatic mutations1, cell lineages2, cellular diversity and regulation3, and development in multicellular organisms4. Single-cell sequencing encompasses hundreds of techniques with different approaches to studying the genomes, transcriptomes, epigenomes, and other omics of individual cells. The analysis of single-cell sequencing data i...

        Introduction to Single-Cell Sequencing
        by seqadmin
        Single-cell sequencing is a technique used to investigate the genome, transcriptome, epigenome, and other omics of individual cells using high-throughput sequencing. This technology has provided many scientific breakthroughs and continues to be applied across many fields, including microbiology, oncology, immunology, neurobiology, precision medicine, and stem cell research.

        The advancement of single-cell sequencing began in 2009 when Tang et al. investigated the single-cell transcriptomes
