| *Short course - Programming and computer algorithms in animal breeding with focus on genomic selection and single-step GBLUP *|
*May 13-30, Athens, GA*
*Week 1. May 13-16*
Introduction to programming in Fortran 95/2003
*Week 2. May 19-23*
Advanced programming in Fortran 95/2005
Computer algorithms useful in animal breeding
Efficient creation and solving of mixed model equations
Introduction to BLUPF90 family of programs
Models (multiple trait, maternal, random regression, competition,...)
Advanced models (competition, threshold, censored,..)
Associated programs (renumf90, inbupg,..)
*Week 3. May 26 - 30 *
Data simulation (including genomics)
Data manipulation and scripts using Unix tools
SNP effects, genomic relationships and genomic recursions
GBLUP, GREML and G-GGIBBS
Single-step GBLUP (prediction + GWAS)
Computing with large number of genotypes
Ignacy Misztal and Shogo Tsuruta (UGA), Andres Legarra and Zulma Vitezica (France), Ignacio Aguilar (Uruguay)
The course can be attended in full or partially. Those familiar with basics of Fortran 95 can skip Week 1. Those familiar with the BLUPF90 software can skip Week 2. Later part of Week 2 and Week 3 will involve very limited programming and can thus be attended only by those interested in application programs and genomic applications. The attendance in Weeks 1-2 is limited to 25 and in Week 3 is limited to 35. Those attending for 2-3 weeks will have priority.
Participants are expected to be familiar with mixed model equations and quantitative genetics. Familiarity with Linux / Unix environments a plus.
Knowledge of programming in any programming language a strong plus.
The fees will be the same regardless of the number of weeks attended.
Industry - $1000, Academic - $600, Graduate student - $300
Graduate student enrolled in U.S. University or College, with status confirmed by Dr. Ron Lewis (email@example.com ) following registration -- no fee.
Application deadline April 6. Email Susan Bradley (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Formal credit is possible for graduate students from the Southern Teaching Consortium. Please ask for details.
