Course Overview

This course will teach students the basics of bioinformatic analysis. Specifically it will run students through taking raw sequence data, producing variants (SNPs and indels) and doing basic analyses on those variants. We will explain the steps involved and also include working example code. Example topics include:

-An introduction to command line computing
-Sequence alignment
-Genome assembly
-RNAseq analysis
-Genotype calling
-Data filtering
-Population structure
-Data visualization

Recommended Prerequisites:  Students should have basic knowledge in R and some command line knowledge (although the latter could be obtained during the course)

Instructors: Tom Booker and Julia Kreiner (Tom Booker's email address: booker@zoology.ubc.ca)
