This one and a half day workshop will provide detailed training on the utilisation of the wealth of data generated by the EuroFAANG GENE-SWitCH project that is delivering new underpinning knowledge for pig and chicken agriculture. The workshop will primarily focus on the comprehensive and integrated annotation of the chicken and pig genomes by the Ensembl Genome Browser. The course will also include a deeper dive from the Ensembl analysis teams into gene annotation and regulation, and demonstrations of the specific analyses and genomic prediction models generated by GENE-SWitCH researchers.
