Linkage mapping course

On 30, 31 March and 1 April 2016 Kyazma organizes a 3-day course on genetic linkage mapping, with computer practicals using JoinMap. The goal of the course is to teach the participant to produce linkage maps for experimental populations using JoinMap and to recognize and subsequently deal with various problematic situations in linkage mapping.

Description

The course will be based upon the textbook Genetic Mapping in Experimental Populations, written by J.W. Van Ooijen & J. Jansen (Cambridge University Press, 2013) (each participant will receive a copy of the book).

The course will include:

Requirements

The course is targeted to the biologist with a basic knowledge of genetics and statistics. Some experience with MS-Excel is useful. Participants need to bring a laptop computer running Windows-Vista (or newer), and MS-Excel (or compatible) installed.

When ?

The three-day course will be given on: 30, 31 March and 1 April 2016.

QTL analysis course

On 4, 5 and the morning of 6 April 2016 Kyazma organizes a 2½-day course on QTL analysis, with computer practicals using MapQTL. The goal of the course is to teach the participant a basic understanding of QTL analysis, so that he/she will be able to perform QTL analysis for experimental populations using MapQTL.

Description

The course will include:

Requirements

The course is targeted to the biologist with a basic knowledge of genetics and statistics. Some experience with MS-Excel is useful. Participants need to bring a laptop computer running Windows-Vista (or newer), and MS-Excel (or compatible) installed.

Hotel accommodation and meals are NOT included in the fee of the course (except 3 lunches and a joint dinner on 5 April). You will receive instructions regarding your hotel reservation.

In-house linkage analysis course

Occasionally Kyazma will accept an invitation to teach above two courses as a one-week in-house course. The fee will depend on the group size, with a minimum of 10 and a maximum of 20 participants. For inquiries please send an e-mail to <course(at)kyazma.nl>.
