Dear colleagues -  

We have a few seats left in our genomics workshops "for the uninitiated", Methods in Ecological Genomics Analysis (MEGA 2018). There are two of them, as usual - please see short descriptions below. More details (including contacts, costs, and how to register) can be found on the workshop's website: https://ecogeno.weebly.com/ <https://ecogeno.weebly.com/>   - please spread the word!

(and yes, we will be working with corals as our subjects!)

1. June 3-9, 2018: Population genomics using low-coverage / RAD data (ANGSD-based)
Wet lab: preparation of 2bRAD libraries.
Dry lab: 
	- read processing using HPC computer cluster (Linux/bash);
	- population structure (PCA, ADMIXTURE, EEMS)
	- demographic analysis based on allele frequency spectrum (Moments, stairwayPlot)
	- genome scanning
Throughout the workshop we will use probabilistic genotyping with ANGSD, which is designed for low-coverage data.

2. June 10-16, 2018: Functional genomics and gene expression network analysis with TagSeq.
Wet lab: preparation of TagSeq libraries
Dry lab: 
	- read processing using HPC computer cluster (Linux/bash);
	- analysis of broad-scale patterns (PCA, DAPC)
	- finding differentially expressed genes using generalized linear models (DESeq2)
	- functional summaries (GO_MWU, KOGMWU)
	- gene co-expression network analysis (WGCNA)
