This is an introductory course to students planning to analyse genomic sequence data. The course will familiarize with some tools and websites characteristically used in genome analyses with a focus on steps downstream computer-intense genome assembly and read mapping, e.g. extraction of information from a genome browser, read coverage and expression difference calculations, SNP calling and annotation, scans for selection signatures, Linux and R for txt-file manipulations, etc.. Far from being complete, the course aims to provide a starting point for own idiosyncratic sequence projects.
Participants need to install Linux (e.g. in Virtualbox) and R (e.g. as R-studio) on their computers, but we will also provide a few installed computers in our seminar room.
