January 3 – 7, 2020 SYMPOSIUM

Symposium for the Annual Meeting of the Society for Integrative and Comparative Biology (SICB)

Location: Austin, TX
Brief info:
Understanding the mechanistic basis by which genes give rise to both
stability and variation in phenotypes is one of the Grand Challenges
articulated by NSF. Accordingly, scientists in many disciplines are using a
wide variety of organisms and experimental approaches to generate
complex datasets at different levels of biological organization, all aiming to
elucidate aspects of the genome-to-phenome framework. The goals of
Building Bridges Symposium and related oral and poster complementary
sessions are to build connections among the most successful of these
research efforts, as well as to identify critical gaps and future needs to
accelerate and facilitate this critical area of research. The Symposium is
organized by members of NSF’s Animal Genome-to-Phenome Research
Coordination Network (AG2P RCN) to encourage networking across
disciplines, gender, ethnicity, and professional ranks. Participant discussions
at a concluding workshop will serve as the basis for a white paper
identifying major gaps, key barriers

January 8 – 10, 2020 WORKSHOP

Bioinformatics Training Workshop for Animal Genome Analysis

Location: Town & Country San Diego
Brief info:
During this workshop, students will have hands-on experience in
basic UNIX commands and R programming that will allow them to
retrieve, store and analyze functional genomics datasets. These
datasets will include the assays used in the FAANG project but
are also the most widely used methods in animal functional
genomics/epigenetics: RNA-seq,Chromatin Immunoprecipitation
(ChIP)-seq, and Assay for Transposase-Accessible Chromatin
(ATAC)-seq. Additionally, participants will be introduced to
basic experimental design, technologies and methods used to
produce these types of data and understand the characteristics
of each type of data. After this workshop, participants are
expected to be able to analyze their own data from these
methods by following training materials.
