Genomics@JCU Workshop Series December 7-9 (Townsville)

Genomics@JCU Workshop Series: From Genome to Phenome: Quantitative and Adaptation Genomics in natural and breeding populations


Quantitative and Adaptation Genomics in natural and breeding populations

After two very successful workshops focusing on Transcriptomics, Metagenomics and small genome/metagenome assembly, Genomics@JCU is organizing a new exciting and integrative workshop covering the fields of Population, Adaptation and Quantitative Genomics in model and non-model organisms.

The aim is to integrate expertise and knowledge from the breeding and evolutionary research community around quantitative and adaptation genomics concepts. The workshop will be given by world-class experts in these fields (Dr. Felicity Jones and Dr. Frank Chan from the Max-Planck Institute (Plön, Germany), Dr. Steve Chenoweth from the University of Queensland, and Dr. Mehar Khatkar and Dr. Peter Thompson from the University of Sydney), as a mix of lectures, conceptual discussions, and hands-on practical case studies (mainly using R tools).

The workshop will be held at JCU Townsville campus from 7–9 December 2015.
