Default Course Population Genetics using R, October 5-9, Barcelona, Spain

Dear colleague,

Registration is open for the workshop "Exploratory Methods for Population
Genetics Using R", October 5-9, 2015. Instructors: Dr . Emmanuel Paradis[
(Institut de Recherche pour le Développement, France) and Dr. Thibaut
Jombart(Imperial College London, UK).

PLACE: Facilities of the Centre de Restauració i Interpretació Paleontologic,
Els Hostalets de Pierola, Barcelona (Spain).


This course is for post-graduate students and researchers who want to acquire
knowledge on the analysis of population genetic data using R. The topics covered
will include basic concepts in population genetics (descriptive statistics,
allele frequencies, graphical exploration of data, linkage disequilibrium), the
classical analysis of temporal and spatial structure (Fst and its variants -Gst,
D, ...-, AMOVA, haplotype networks, mismatch distribution), and some advanced
topics such as multivariate analyses and the coalescent. How to handle and
manipulate variant calling format (VCF) files, which are becoming the standard
for storing large-scale population genetic data from NGS technologies, will also
be covered.

The objectives of the course a (i) to learn the theoretical and practical
bases of population genetics, (ii) to know how to choose a strategy of
population genetic analysis, (iii) to be able to handle the appropriate tools
for analysis of population genetic data, from the simplest to the most advanced

This course is co-organized by Transmitting Science, the Institut Catalá de
Paleontologia M. Crusafont and the Centre de Restauració i Interpretació
Paleontologic. Places are limited and will be covered by strict registration

Please feel free to distribute this information between your colleagues if you
consider it appropriate.

With best regards

Soledad De Esteban-Trivigno, PhD.
