BigOmics - High Throughput Genetic Diversity Analyses of Tropical Crops

From 22 May 2023 until 26 May 2023 - BIOPOLIS/CIBIO-InBIO, Vairão, Portugal | POSTPONED to 2024 (February-March)
BigOmics - High Throughput Genetic Diversity Analyses of Tropical Crops
POSTPONED to 2024 (February-March)

This advanced course aims at presenting the bioinformatics/population genomics tools to study crops and in particular to identify genes important in the domestication process/adaptation to local environment. This is a very innovative course with a strong hands-on component and research mini-projects proposed by experts from University of Montpellier.
The general objective is to help participants getting familiar with the different forms of raw data from the latest sequencing technologies and their analysis, focusing on various tropical crops with diverse genomic constitutions and modes of reproduction, such as rice, sugarcane and banana, all of them intensively studied in Univ. Montpellier.

This advanced course will start with an in-person week at CIBIO on May 22-26. The program will include presentations on crops and on tools, from instructors both on-site and on-line, and hands-on sessions under guidance. Participants will be invited to conduct their own research mini-project on suspected introgressions among rice cultivar groups, trying to connect population diversity to gene diversity.
The research mini-project will go on until June 16th with regular remote interaction with instructors. Participants will be asked to deliver a short report and a brief oral presentation on their results at the end of the course on June 16th.
