Welcome to Micro RadCamp 2020 - The New York City Edition

August 5th, 2020
New York City


In this workshop, we will introduce RADseq assembly, phylogenetic and population genetic methods, high performance computing, basic unix command line and python programming, and jupyter notebooks to promote reproducible science. We will introduce ipyrad, a unified and self-contained RAD-seq assembly and analysis framework, which emphasizes simplicity, performance, and reproducibility. We will proceed through all the steps necessary to assemble the RAD-seq data generated in Part I of the workshop. We will introduce both the command line interface, as this is typically used in high performance computing settings, and the ipython/jupyter notebook API, which allows researchers to generate documented and easily reproducible workflows. Additionally, we will mentor participants in using the ipyrad.analysis API which provides a powerful, simple, and reproducible interface to several widely used methods for inferring phylogenetic relationships, population structure, and admixture.
