ForBio and University of Gothenburg workshop: Target capture for Illumina sequencing [Virtual]

The Target capture for Illumina sequencing workshop will cover state-of-the-art methodology for generating DNA sequence data from multiple loci and individuals for phylogenomics and population genomics analyses. You will learn the complete process from designing a Next generation sequencing (NGS) target capture project, the most essential steps in the lab, and the bioinformatic processing of the produced data. The course is aimed to equip students with the necessary knowledge to design and carry out their own target capture project, and make sensible and informed decisions along the way.

Course teachers: Tobias Andermann, Maria Fernanda Torres, Christine Bacon, GU, and Logan Kistler, Smithsonian Institution, DC

Recommended background: We strongly recommend everyone to have a decent basic knowledge of bash, as well as some basic genetics and/or bioinformatics background.

Course level: PhD-level course. Motivated MSc students can be admitted as well. The format of this course requires students to identify the need of using these methods in their research, and students with PhD projects that include target capture will be prioritized.
A 2 ECTS course certificate will be given to students that pass the course by ForBio.

Fee: No course fee.

Course plan: The course schedule can be found here. The University of Gothenburg course plan can be found here.

Application: The course will be taught online. The application deadline has passed.

Contact Tobias Andermann or Quentin Mauvisseau for more information.
