May  2015
  • Workshop — mRNAseq for non-model organisms
    Starts: 12:00 am
    Ends: May 6, 2015 - 12:00 am
    Description: This workshop is open to everyone, including graduate students, postdocs, staff, faculty, and community members. We have extra space for UC Davis VetMed affiliates; contact the lead instructor if you are an SVM affiliate. (These spaces will be released to the wait list on Monday, April 27th.)

    This two-day hands-on workshop will introduce biologists to doing de novo transcriptome analysis with khmer and Trinity. The primary focus will be on non-model organisms - organisms with no reference genome and poor gene annotations. The workshop will be eukaryote-focused (poly-A mRNA/large genomes/genes with introns).

    We will be analyzing a stock data set, and we will be using the Amazon cloud.

  • Seminar — Philip Zerbe — Learning from the master chemists – Investigating plant specialized metabolism for human health and bioproducts
    Starts: 10:00 am
    Ends: May 8, 2015 - 11:00 am
    Location: GBSF 4202
    Description: Part of the Genome Center Systems and Synthetic Biology Focus Group series of seminars
  • 'Getting Bioinformatics Done with Galaxy': a free BGI @ UC Davis workshop taught by the Bioinformatics Core
    Starts: 11:00 am
    Ends: May 13, 2015 - 2:00 pm
    Location: room 1105 Vet Med 3B
    Description: Overview

    Galaxy is a user friendly, customizable bioinformatics analysis and workflow management tool increasingly used by researchers in the life sciences. It lowers the training burden for new lab members, increases productivity and reproducibility, and can be used locally and in the cloud. We will describe and demonstrate some typical analysis workflows within Galaxy, and discuss how it can enable your research. Please bring your laptop if you would like to follow along on the galaxy site!

    Refreshments will be provided.

  • Bits and Bites talk — Charlotte Acharya — From raw sequencing reads to SNP calls- Analyzing GBS data with TASSEL
    Starts: 12:00 pm
    Ends: May 15, 2015 - 1:00 pm
    Location: GBSF room 4202
    Description: Genotyping-By-Sequencing (GBS) uses methylation sensitive restriction enzymes to produce highly multiplexed, reduced representation, libraries for sequencing on the Illumina HiSeq platform. Library production is simple and efficient, but identifying and validating the SNPs contained within the dataset is not always straightforward. This talk will present an overview of the analysis steps within TASSEL's reference based GBS pipeline and highlight some important variables that should be considered when handling a GBS dataset.
  • Exit Seminar — Abigail Yu — Bioinformatic Methods for Understanding Engineered DNA-Binding Proteins & Their Application in Malaria Research
    Starts: 2:00 pm
    Ends: May 21, 2015 - 3:00 pm
    Location: GBSF 1005
No events to display.
