One last time in Leipzig: Our programming course will take place in March next year. You can still apply for it until the end of this year. More information about the course are here: http://evop.bioinf.uni-leipzig.de.
Late but not forgotten: Alvaro defended his PhD this August. Congratulations to an excellent thesis and defense!
The next Programming for Evolutionary Biology (PEB) Conference will take place in Belgrade, from September 7th-12th. The website is already online and you can already register for it: http://pebconference.info/ This conference was initiated by students of our third Programming for Evolutionary Biology course, … Continue reading
With this work we aimed at obtaining more insights into the gene regulatory networks of the human prefrontal cortex, which is important for cognitive abilities. Analyzing multiple independent genome-wide expression datasets from healthy individuals we realized that the transcription factor … Continue reading
Stefano, you made it! Congratulations, Dr. Berto!
We are currently running our fifth “Programming for Evolutionary Biology” course in Leipzig. We are taking the students of our course on a tour on analyzing Next-Generation-Sequencing data, genome annotation, population genomics, phylogenomics, gene expression evolution, biological networks, and other … Continue reading
Our paper on the evolution of binding sites of the transcription factor GABPa has been accepted for publication in MBE. This work was originally started by Robert Querfurth at the Max-Planck-Institute for Molecular Genetics in Berlin. Alvaro and I got … Continue reading
When we started writing this paper we were inspired by the debate about the question of how much of the human genome is functional. Estimates for that proportion range from 5% to 90%, a huge difference that obviously cannot be … Continue reading
Registration just opened for the 4th Programming for Evolutionary Biology course. Based on our very successful previous courses we again put together a comprehensive program for learning programming skills to perform analysis of genomics and evolutionary data. Check out our … Continue reading
