FAANG Workshop

FAANG is partnering with the 7th International Symposium on Animal Functional Genomics. There will be a joint ISAFG2018-FAANG scientific session on the morning of Wednesday, Nov 14th.

FAANG specific activities will start after lunch on Wednesday, Nov 14th with updates from representatives of the FAANG committees and information on new national and international projects. The afternoon of the 14th and morning of the 15th will have parallel breakout sessions and focus groups to assess FAANG related experimental protocols and procedures, including bioinformatics approaches and data management as well as “wet lab” methods for epigenetic and chromatin analyses.

Participants are invited to suggest topics for the breakout sessions and we encourage proposals from individuals to lead discussion areas.

The FAANG meeting will be followed by 2 computing short courses:

  • Introduction to R
  • Genome annotation with R
