PIRE: ‘Omics and Bioinformatics Workshop 2018
MMEEL members Deo and Mikel participated in the PIRE: ‘Omics and Bioinformatics Workshop held on June 18 – July 3, 2018 at the Silliman University, Dumaguete City. During the first week of hands-on training and workshop, the participants were able to enhance their knowledge on Linux command-line operations in preparation for actual NGS data processing and analyses. The second week of workshop focused on utilizing dDocent (dō-sᵊnt) - a population genomics tool for processing and analyzing RAD-seq (and other flavors of RAD) data. They were also able to learn how to use different bioinformatics tools essential for filtering SNPs, which is a critical step in many downstream analyses, such as correct identification and interpretation of population connectivity and structuring. During the last days of the training, the participants also learned differential gene expression analysis from RNA-seq data using various R packages. The workshop was funded by the US-NSF and ran under the collaboration of Silliman University and Old Dominion University.
