RAD (Restriction site Associated DNA) Sequencing is a new method which applies next generation DNA sequencing to ecological genetics. The method generates thousands of genetic markers across a genome and enables the sequencing of these markers in tens of individuals from a single sequencing lane. This meeting is intended to bring together researchers in the UK who are implementing RAD sequencing, or who hope to implement it in the near future. Paul Hohenlohe, the first author on a recent major paper on RAD Sequencing (doi:10.1371/journal.pgen.1000862) has agreed to visit Edinburgh for the meeting. We therefore expect this meeting to establish best practise for the RAD sequencing method and spread the word about the method among UK researchers.

Target Audience

The meeting is being advertised to bioinformaticians and ecological geneticists across the UK.


This event is provisionally scheduled to start at 09:00 Tuesday 31 August 2010 and close at 17:00 on Tuesday 31 August 2010.
