registrations are now open for the ONLINE Physalia course "GENOME-WIDE PREDICTION OF COMPLEX TRAITS IN HUMANS, PLANTS AND ANIMALs"
When: 8-12 February 2021
Course website: www.physalia-courses.org/courses-workshops/course49b/
This course will introduce students, researchers and professionals to the steps needed to acquire expertise in the genomic prediction area applied to animals, plants and humans.
The course is aimed at students, researchers and professionals interested in learning the different steps and approaches to perform a genomic prediction study. It will include information useful for both beginners and more advanced users. We will start by introducing general concepts of Quantitative Genetics and mixed model theory, progressively describing all steps and putting there seamlessly together in a general workflow. Attendees should have a background in biology, specifically genetics; previous exposure to statistical genetics 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.
*Interpreting and calculating the genomic breeding value and genomic risk score
*Understanding the different steps involved in a typical genomic prediction analysis and how to implement computer tools to carry them on.
*Implement cross validation design to estimate the ability of genomic data to predict complex traits, and its application in human genetics and breeding programs.
