Comparative genomics (CMGN01)

29th April 2019 - 3rd May 2019

Course Overview:

This course will introduce biologists and bioinformaticians to the field of comparative genomics. The course will give a deeper understanding on the advantages and disadvantages of each of approach in general to enabling an informed decision of study design for the participants for future studies and learn the cutting edge approaches to process state of the art data sets. Different techniques will be introduced to identify single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) and structural variations (SVs) as well as the annotation of these variations and the assessment for their functional impact.

We will give a broad introduction on how to:

  1. Process short and long read data based on multiple NGS data sets including mapping and de novo assembly
  2. Detect SNP and Structural Variations using de novo assembly, short  or long read mapping
  3. Assess the impact of the detected variations
  4. Perform population genetic analysis between multiple samples to obtain a deeper insight into these variants.

Furthermore, we will teach on how to install and manage these methods and give an introduction in Cloud computing. This will enable the participants to set up efficient pipelines on their own institutions. The course will conclude with the participants being aware of the state of the art approaches and a deepened knowledge to decide which study design is the optimal for future studies .
