INTRODUCTION TO GENOMIC DATA ANALYSIS USING HAPMAP AND 1000 GENOMES PROJECTS
February 13th-17th, 2017, Barcelona (Spain)
This course is entitled to teach the main concepts of genomic data analysis using real data from two of the most important international projects describing human genetic variation: The HapMap and the 1000 Genomes Projects. In this course you will get familiar with general results emerged in these two projects, focusing in the genomic information displayed in the Ensemble version of 1000 Genomes Project Browser; but not in the transcriptomic and proteomic applications. You will also learn how to manage and deal with huge genetic datasets and which strategies and analysis are used to answer genetic, demographic and evolutionary questions. The course will alternate theory with practical computer exercises but it will focus on hands-on training.
Although examples will be based on single-nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) data in human individuals, most topics covered in this course can be extended to other types of markers and organisms. Basic use of the R statistical package and command-line based environments will be introduced in the course and previous knowledge is not required.
