General information about the workshops
Where: Wrigley Marine Science Center,
Catalina Island, CA
When: Amplicon sequencing: Aug 11-15, 2bRAD genotyping: Aug 15-23 (2017).
Our workshops are geared towards graduate students, postdoctoral scholars, and any researchers
working in ecology, evolutionary biology, or related fields. Experience with molecular biology
is a plus, but is not essential. No prior programming experience is required, although familiarity
with the command line interface is always helpful.
What to bring:
Participants will need to provide their own laptop, up to 10 high-quality DNA samples,
and appropriate laboratory attire (closed-toe shoes, long pants) for the wet-lab activities.
The workshops cover:
• Hands-on training in production of sequencing libraries
• Logistics of preparing and analyzing 100s of samples in parallel
• Working with command line tools for analysis of large datasets
• Profiling genetic variation or microbial communities from high-throughput
DNA sequence data
The cost of registration depends on duration of each workshop: $1,300 for amplicon sequencing,
$1,900 for 2bRAD, or $3,000 for both). This fee covers accommodations (see photos from past
workshops for a view of the accomodations), 3 meals a day with coffee and snacks, in addition to
laboratory supplies, sequencing costs, and facility fees. The budget includes resources
for each participant to prepare and sequence libraries from 10 of their own samples, in addition
to samples prepared together as part of the group project. Participants are responsible for
arranging their own travel to the site.
