We are happy to receive a visit of Professor Daniel Gianola from the Department of Animal Science at University of Wisconsin-Madison (the USA). Professor will give one open lecture “Inference and prediction in modern quantitative genetics”. The lecture is scheduled on 05.07.2016 at 10:00 and takes place in 7k room in the Department of Genetics (Kuzuchowska 7 street).
More information could be found here.
The poster entitled NGS-based analysis of Copy Number Variations in various cattle breeds was presented by Magda Mielczarek during 2-day long BIT 2016 conference. The “Bioinformatics In Torun 2016” was the 16th annual conference organised by the Polish Bioinformatics Society (Polskie Towarzystwo Bioinformatyczne / PTBI) and Faculty of Physics, Astronomy and Informatics, Nicolaus Copernicus University in Torun.This year BIT16 was devoted mainly, but not exclusively, to bioinformatics in biomedicine.
Tomasz Suchocki will participate in the 5th International Conference on Quantitative Genetics. It is a dedicated meeting on statistical methods applied to genetics. The conference is organized by University of Wisconsin in Madison (USA). Hw will present poster entitled The estimation of additive, dominance and epistatic effects underlying lameness in Fleckvieh and Braunvieh cows.
“A bioinformatic analysis of lameness and hoof disease traits in dairy cattle with the emphasis on epistasis”
The aim of the project is to bettwe understand the genetics underlying hoof diseases and lameness. A basis for this project are 70 000 SNPs genotyped for Braunvieh and Fleckvieh cows with records on production, hoof diseases and lameness. The data set was made available by the courtesy of ZuchtData EDV-Dienstleistungen GmbH.

In May we are happy to receive a visit of prof. Henner Simianer (University of Goettingen). Henner will give two open lectures:
17.05.2016 13:00 Genomic and other revolutions in animal breeding, room 396 (Institute of Animal Nutrition)
18.05.2016 09:00 Sequence-based genomic prediction, room 7K (Institute of Genetics)
Theta participates in the NGS’16 conference. It is a dedicated meeting on cutting-edge approaches to the processing and analysis of Genome Annotation methods. It takes place in Barcelona and it is hosted by the International Society for Computational Biology (ISCB) and the Centre for Genomic Regulation (CRG).
Theta group participates in the international COST Action called “Functional Annotation of Animal Genomes – European network (FAANG-Europe)”. The main goal of this grant is improving the functional annotation of animal genomes in order improve the accuracy of predicting phenotypes from genotypes (sequence). In details, areas of expertise relevant for the action are:
- biological sciences: comparative and functional genomics, transcriptomics, epigenetics, gene regulation and bioinformatics
- veterinary sciences: databases, data mining, data curation, computational modeling.
