  • Population Genetics and Demographic History: model-based approaches

    13 - 17 May 2019

    Oeiras, Portugal

    Elixir node event
    Population Genetics and Demographic History: model-based approaches https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/pgdh19 Genetic and genomic data are increasingly used by ecologists and evolutionary biologists in general. It has thus become important for many biologists with different levels of experience to produce and analyse genetic (and genomic) data. In this course we will take a practical approach to the analysis of genetic and genomic data, but we will also provide some of the theoretical background required to understand the outputs of the software used. This course will be organised so as to mix lectures where important notions are introduced with practicals where freely available software will be used. While this will not be the focus of the course, we will also introduce and discuss genealogical (coalescent-based) simulation methods and those based on forward-in-time simulations. Altogether this will allow to discuss the potentialities and limitations of the tools available to the community. In this five-day course we will introduce the main concepts that underlie many of the models that are frequently used in population genetics. We will focus on the importance of demographic history (e.g. effective sizes and migration patterns) in shaping genetic data. We will go through the basic notions that are central to population genetics, insisting particularly on the statistics used to measure genetic diversity and population differentiation. The course will also cover a short introduction to coalescent theory, Bayesian inference in population genetics and data simulation. We will also introduce methods that have been recently developed to analyse genomic data such as the PSMC method of Li and Durbin that reconstructs the demographic history of a species or population with the genome of a single individual. Most theory will be put into practice in practical sessions, analyzing real and/or simulated datasets. In these sessions, we will look at measures of genetic diversity and differentiation and use methods to infer demographic history. We will learn how to perform coalescent simulations of genetic/genomic data (using mainly Richard Hudson's ms program). We will also show how to simulate data for PSMC analyses. This will allow users to compare the PSMC obtained with real data to those obtained for the models they used. We will also look at how habitat fragmentation can be simulated using an in-house program. Some exercises will make use of R scripts (R being a freely available statistical program). Basic R knowledge is a pre-requisite but we will provide a short introduction to R. The R statistical package is a very powerful tool to analyse data outputs from many population genetics software, and can also be used to simulate genetic data under simple demographic scenarios. 2019-05-13 09:00:00 UTC 2019-05-17 17:00:00 UTC The Gulbenkian Training Programme in Bioinformatics Instituto Gulbenkian de Ciência (IGC), 6, Rua Quinta Grande, Oeiras, Portugal Instituto Gulbenkian de Ciência (IGC), 6, Rua Quinta Grande Oeiras Portugal 2781-901 Instituto Gulbenkian de CiênciaBiodata.pt - Elixir's portuguese node of the european projec bicourses@igc.gulbenkian.pt [] Basic molecular population genetics and molecular ecology.

  • Computational PANGenomics

    9 - 13 September 2019

    Oeiras, Portugal

    Elixir node event
    Computational PANGenomics https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/computational-pangenomics Reference genomes have become central to bioinformatics approaches, and form the core of standard analyses using contemporary sequencing data. However, the use of linear reference genomes, which provide the sequence of one representative genome for a species, is increasingly becoming a limitation as the number of sequenced genomes grows. In particular, they tend to bias us away from the observation of variation in the genomes we study. A general solution to this problem is to use a pangenome that incorporates both sequence and variation from many individuals as our reference system. This pangenome is naturally modelled as a graph with annotations and can provide all the functionality traditionally provided by linear reference genomes. Unlike linear reference genomes, a pangenome readily incorporates both small and large variation, allowing bias-free genotyping at known alleles. In this course, we will explore the use of modern bioinformatic tools that allow researchers to use pangenomes as their reference system when engaging in studies of organisms of all types. Such techniques will aid any researcher working on organisms of high genetic diversity or on organisms lacking a high-quality reference genome. This course targets all researchers interested in learning about an exciting paradigm shift in computational genomics. 2019-09-09 09:30:00 UTC 2019-09-13 17:00:00 UTC The Gulbenkian Training Programme in Bioinformatics Instituto Gulbenkian de Ciência (IGC), 6, Rua Quinta Grande, Oeiras, Portugal Instituto Gulbenkian de Ciência (IGC), 6, Rua Quinta Grande Oeiras Portugal 2781-901 Instituto Gulbenkian de Ciência, Biodata.pt - Elixir's portuguese node of the european project bicourses@igc.gulbenkian.pt [] This course is oriented towards biologists and bioinformaticians.

    Integrative Biological Interpretation using Proteomics https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/integrative-biological-interpretation-using-proteomics Quantitative proteomics by mass spectrometry has become an essential tool for multi-omics studies aiming at answering important biological questions in a system-wide perspective. Proteomics data contain rich and deep information that can become challenging to extract, interpret, and interface with other experimental outcomes. This training course is aimed at researchers who are not expert in proteomics and want to integrate quantitative proteomics results into wider biomedical experiments. We will focus on quality control from an end-user perspective, link to the underlying genomic context, multivariate analysis, protein complexes investigation, and compare different platforms for biological interpretation. After the training, participants will be able to critically interpret results, troubleshoot analyses, and will be ready to successfully attend more specialized training e.g. in proteogenomics or biological network analysis. 2019-11-04 09:30:00 UTC 2019-11-07 18:00:00 UTC The Gulbenkian Training Programme in Bioinformatics, Biodata.pt - Elixir's portuguese node of the european project R.
