Genomics of Disease in Wildlife Workshop
I am a core instructor at the Genomics of Disease in Wildlife workshop, held annually in June at Colorado State University in Fort Collins, CO, USA. I teach an introduction to the command line, along with various aspects of bioinformatics, genomics, and next-generation sequencing analysis. This is a terrific group of instructors and organizers, and I encourage anyone interested in learning about genomics, especially from the perspective of investigating wildlife diseases, to apply. Here are links to the 2017, 2018, and 2019 courses' GitHub sites, where you can find a variety of materials such as an agenda, lectures, and tutorials.
Graduate School Philosophy
I really find this page from the Tye Lab at the Salk Institute to be an accurate description of graduate school philosophy, goals, and expectations. I encourage those interested in joining the lab to review this webpage.
Landscape Genetics Distributed Graduate Seminar
I have not participated in this course, but I know many graduate students that have, as well as instructors, and it comes highly recommended. The course is offered every few years, and often produces great publications (see list here) Here is a description of the course:
The Landscape Genetics Distributed Graduate Seminar (DGS) is an international collaboration that provides a unique opportunity for interdisciplinary graduate training. The course draws on experts from around the world to deliver an in-depth introduction and overview of the field of landscape genetics. The course caters to students in both basic and applied ecology, conservation/population genetics, landscape ecology and conservation biology. Every other year, several hundred students, post-docs and faculty from around the world participate in this course.
Johnsen Lab (Duke University)
Check out Sönke Johnsen's lab webpage at Duke University where I spent more than four years as a postdoctoral researcher. If you are intested in visual ecology at all, especially of marine and deep-sea organisms, get in touch with Sönke!
Burger Lab (Vetmeduni, Vienna)
Pamela Burger is considered one of world's foremost experts in camel genomics. I did my first postdoc with Pamela, and she is one of the most wonderful people somehow could work for. See her long list of amazing publications and participation in a variety of projects to conserve both domestic animal genomic resources as well as the genomic integrity of the critically endangered wild camel.
Culver Lab (University of Arizona)
I studied in Melanie Culver's Conservation Genetics Laboratory at the University of Arizona for my PhD. She was an amazing advisor, and remains a great friend and mentor to this day. Check out the link to see what her lab is up to!
