Dear all,

we still have a few places left on the course "Introduction to
genome-wide association studies (GWAS)"at the Free University
(FU) Berlin (Germany) from the 2nd to the 6th of March.

Instructors: 1) Dr. Filippo Biscarini (CNR, Italy); 2) Dr. Oscar
González-Recio (INIA, Spain); 3) Dr. Christian Werner (University of
Edinburgh, UK)


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 describe all the necessary steps involved
in a typical GWAS study, which will then be used to build a reusable
and reproducible bioinformatics pipeline.


The course is aimed at students, researchers and professionals interested
in learning the different steps involved in a GWAS study using them to
build a structured pipeline for semi-automated and reproducibile GWAS
analyses. It will include information useful for both beginners and more
advanced users. We will start by introducing general concepts of GWAS and
bioinformatics pipeline building, progressively describing all steps and
putting there seamlessy together in a general workflow. Attendees should
have a background in biology, specifically genetics; previous exposure
to GWAS experiments would also be beneficial. There will be a mix of
lectures and hands-on practical exercises using R, Linux command line
and custom software. Some basic understanding of R programming and Unix
will be advantageous. Attendees should also have some basic familiarity
with genomic data such as those arising from NGS experiments.
