*Dear all,*


We are pleased to announce applications are still open for an upcoming 
CABANA Workshop this June 25-28 titled, “Genomic Analysis of Crop 
Biodiversity using R”.

The GCRF-fundedCABANA project <http://www.cabana.online/>is also 
delighted to offer travel fellowships of up to £1125 GBP for researchers 
to attend these workshops. The fellowships are open to scientists from 
Latin America at any stage of their career. Early-stage researchers and 
researchers from minority groups are especially encouraged to apply.

Title:Genomic Analysis of Crop Biodiversity using R

Venue:LANGEBIO, Cinvestav, Libramiento Norte Carretera Leon Km 9.6, 
Irapuato,  GUA, 36821, Mexico

Dates:25-28 June 2019

Deadline for Applications: 28 May 2019 at 10:00 BST

Registration fee:$700 MXN

Registration Link:https://forms.gle/43eGxwUYUCvjvkdF9


This course will provide training on using R in genomics applications 
for crop biodiversity. The first day will cover the basics of 
biodiversity and R, before analyzing various genomes to assess 
biodiversity. This will include hierarchical clustering, correlating 
genomic data with geographic and phenotypic information and 
investigating gene-phenotype relationships and microsatellites. This 
course will use genomic data of wheat, maize and chilli pepper as 
training datasets throughout the week.

This course will be jointly taught by Octavio Martinez de la Vega 
(LANGEBIO, Cinvestav) and Manuel Humberto Reyes-Valdes (UAAAN).

Target Audience

This course is aimed at researchers from postgraduate level upwards 
interested in using R to analyse genomics data for crop biodiversity 

Please note this course will be taught in English, however the trainers 
are fluent in Spanish, and can offer language support where feasible.


An undergraduate level degree in plant biology or a related discipline 
would be an advantage.

You will need to know basic commands in R in order to get the most from 
this course, though a review of basic concepts and commands in R will be 
covered on the first day. You can find a good introduction to R here: 

You will also need to bring a laptop with R installed and working 
knowledge of how to navigate your working directory effectively using R

Please forward this call through your networks and local bioinformatics 

We wish you the best with your applications and hope you have an 
enjoyable holiday season.

Kind regards,

Guilherme Oliveira & Piv Gopalasingam, on behalf of the CABANA Consortium
