Workshop Dates: June 3-9, 2018
Application Deadline: February 15, 2018
Venue: Colorado State University, Fort Collins, Colorado, USA
Wildlife biodiversity can be drastically affected by the outbreak and transmission of disease pathogens in both natural habitats and ex situ populations. Recent technological advances in genomic sciences and increasingly affordable Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) assay costs have coalesced to result in powerful tools to monitor, detect, and reconstruct the past, present and future role of pathogens within wildlife biodiversity. This 2nd annual ‘Genomics of Disease in Wildlife’ workshop will provide hands-on training for researchers seeking to incorporate genomic data into their wildlife disease related projects. The course will be taught by a core group of experts in genome data analyses along with invited pre-eminent scientists researching host-pathogen genomics in wildlife.
The workshop will provide intensive computer training and hands-on analyses of ‘real world’ genomic data of both host and pathogen including:
Multiple Sequence Alignments
Adaptation and Selection
Targeted Variant Identification
