Reposted... This summer our team is offering two workshops on the use of high-throughput sequencing to study gene expression and genetic variation. For more details, see this link or the description that follows. http://people.oregonstate.edu/~meyere/workshops.html We aim to train biologists with little or no NGS experience to prepare sequencing libraries and analyze the millions of DNA sequences that result. Participants are expected to provide DNA or RNA samples from their own study systems, and we will prepare sequencing libraries together from those samples as well as a shared set of samples for a group project. Participants will learn to analyze these data themselves using simple command line tools on a high-performance computing cluster. We’ll cover each step of the process from DNA or RNA in a tube, to millions of DNA sequences, to biological data on gene expression or genetic variation. Registration for these workshops includes room and board (three meals a day including plenty of coffee and snacks) throughout the workshop, and reagents/sequencing such that each participant can sequence and analyze a set of their own samples, generating pilot data for their species of interest. Our Tag-Seq workshop will run from Aug 10-18, and the 2bRAD workshop from Aug 18-26. Registration for either workshop alone costs $1,900. Participants enrolling in both workshops will pay a discounted rate of $3,700 altogether. For more details, including information from previous years’ workshops, please see the full posting at the following website:http://people.oregonstate.edu/~meyere/workshops.html Contact us with questions, with "Workshops 2018" in the subject line. To reserve your spot, please contact Demian Willette (email@example.com). For specific questions about 2bRAD, contact Eli Meyer (firstname.lastname@example.org), and for specific questions about TagSeq, contact Carly Kenkel (email@example.com). Space is limited! To reserve your spot, please confirm your participation no later than May 15th and pay registration fee by June 15th. Thanks, hope to see some of you on Catalina this August!
