Genetic Outlier Analysis Workshop (2024) registrations now open

There are many interesting patterns that you can extract from genetic variant data. This can include patterns of linkage, balancing selection, or even inbreeding signals. One of the most common approaches is to find sites on the genome that are under selection. This online workshop will introduce the basics of genetic selection analysis, and will step you through the process of identifying signals of selection in an example genomic dataset using the outlier analysis method.

The GSA is proud to present this workshop with the Australian BioCommons and the assistance of a network of facilitators from the national Bioinformatics Training Cooperative. The lead trainer is Dr Katarina Stuart, Research Fellow at the University of Auckland, and it will take place over two five-hour sessions.

Date/Time: 27-28 February 2024, 1pm – 6pm NZDT / 11am – 4pm AEDT / 10am – 3pm AEST / 10:30am – 3:30pm ACST / 8am – 1pm AWST (check in your timezone)

This workshop is for researchers associated with an Australian organisation and/or members of the Genetics Society of AustralAsia who will use genetic selection analysis as part of their projects. Apply here.

Applications close at 11:59pm AEDT, Friday 9 February 2024.

More details are available on the Australian BioCommons website.
