Overview

This course will provide an overview of data resources, tools and analysis pipelines for 'omics datasets within the agricultural sciences. It will be delivered using a mixture of lectures, practical computer sessions and discussions based on agricultural case studies and public domain data. Additionally there will be opportunity to review the key opportunities and challenges within this field.

Audience

This course is aimed at researchers working within the agricultural sciences who have some previous experience of bioinformatics. Some of the tools to be introduced on the course will require the use of Unix commands and the R statistics package.  We strongly recommend that you familiarise yourself with these. Free tutorials are available from:
