Comparative genomics in eukaryotes

Trainer Klaas Vandepoele
BITS Courses TRAINING AT VIB

Goal

At the end of this training, participants will understand the principles and possible applications of comparative genomics.
They will know how comparative genomics is used to:

  • annotate and characterize gene families
  • annotate and characterize genomes
  • transfer information from one species to another

Summary

This course presents a comprehensive overview of the principles and applications of comparative genomics in eukaryotes. The course combines lectures with hands-on exercises.

Prerequisites

This training is intended for people with basic knowledge of biology. BITS provides 15 laptops for their training sessions. Depending on the number of participants (max 20), it is possible that you have to share the laptop with one other participant but you can also choose to bring your own laptop for this training session.??

Schedule

See the TRAINING AT VIB website for a detailed schedule of this training.
