ForBio lab course: Introduction to RADseq, part I
Restriction site Associated DNA (RAD) has recently made it possible to obtain genome scale sequence data not only from model organisms, but also from species without available genomic resources. RADseq techniques can be used for to address questions a wide range of applications in biosystematics such as SNP discovery and genotyping, genotype-phenotype association mapping, linkage mapping, QTL analysis, hybridization and gene flow analysis, and population genetics. More recently, RADseq data has also been used to address problems in phylogeographic and phylogenetic studies by utilizing information from linked SNPs in “mini-contigs” obtained from paired end sequencing.
The course will give the participants practical experience in producing sequence ready RADseq libraries.
Application deadline is May 5, 2013.
