RADseq data analysis (on mobile phone while baby is sleeping)


Yvan Le Bras reminded us today that everyone can analyse RADseq data in Galaxy.

RADSeq combines two simple molecular biology techniques with Illumina sequencing: the use of restriction enzymes to cut DNA into fragments (as for RFLPs and AFLPs), and the use of molecular identifiers (MID) to associate sequence reads to particular individuals. This delivers high-resolution population genomic data — thousands of sequenced markers across many individuals — for any organism at reasonable costs.

Yvan and his team also created some training materials which you can find in the Galaxy Training Network (GTN).
