Introduction to Genomic data analysis using HapMap and 1000 genomes projects – Second edition”; January 20-24, 2014.
Instructors: Dr. Marc Via (Universitat de Barcelona, Spain) and Robert
Carreras-Torres (Universitat de Barcelona, Spain).
Place: Premises of Sabadell of the Institut Català de Paleontologia Miquel
Crusafont, Sabadell, Barcelona (Spain).
Organized by: Transmitting Science and the Institut Catalá de Paleontologia
The course is entitled to teach the main concepts of genomic data analysis using
real data from the two most important international projects: The HapMap and the
1000 Genomes Projects. In this course you will get familiar with the data
arising from these two projects and learn how to use it alone or in combination
with other datasets 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.

This course will be held in the Sabadell facilities of the Institut Català de
Paleontologia (Barcelona, Spain) and is co-organized by Transmitting Science and
the Institut Catalá de Paleontologia M. Crusafont. Place are limited and will be
covered by strict registration order.
