Description

An introduction to population genomics

Presented by Sonal Singhal, University of Michigan

This workshop will start with a short lecture introduction to population genomics (~15mins), followed by hands-on experience on how to handle and visualize population genomic data (largely) using a published data set (Malinsky et al 2015. Genomic islands of speciation separate cichlid ecomorphs in an East African crater lake. Science 350: 1493-1498).

Participants who have their own population genomic data sets are encouraged to bring them, and we can brainstorm ways to analyze these data as a group.

The workshop will cover:

  • How to calculate basic summary statistics from population genomic data.

  • How to infer population structure in population genomic data.

  • How to infer demographic histories for population genomic data.

  • How to start identifying targets of selection in population genomic data.

  • Common pitfalls when analyzing population genomic data.
