GWAS Workshop


Ali Navabi and graduate students Harwinder Singh Sidhu, Robert Bruce and Jennifer Wilker recently organized the GWAS (genome-wide association study) workshop, for 50 registrants in the computer classroom in the Crop Science building. The workshop gave theoretical information on software for genomic analysis and genetic similarity among plants and other organisms and provided hands-on activities with various analysis packages. Peter  Bradbury and Lynn Johnson from  Ed Buckler's lab in Cornell University, Ithaca, NY travelled to Guelph to lead the sessions. The workshop attracted many of our graduate students and postdocs as well researchers from other departments.
