SNP and dosage calling in polyploid genotyping-by-sequencing data
We will use a tetraploid rose example dataset to perform sequence quality control, alignment with the reference genome, SNP calling, and dosage calling. We will show how to perform the analysis step-by-step by using the Reads2Map workflows collection which is written with the automatized and reproducible workflow description language (WDL).
Introduction to MCHap
MCHap is a command line tool for micro-haplotype assembly in auto-polyploids and outputs standard VCF files. In this session, we will use MCHap to assemble micro-haplotypes in a bi-parental, tetraploid cross.
Linkage Mapping and QTL mapping
We will take an example of either GBS-derived data (or array if the GBS one takes too long to run). We will go through the steps of linkage mapping using MAPpoly and will do QTL analysis in QTLpoly.
Updates in VIEWpoly: A visualization tool to integrate and explore polyploidy genetic analysis
We will demonstrate an example of the usage of VIEWpoly, an R package, and a shiny app to mine results from MAPpoly, polymapR, QTLpoly, polyqtlR, and diaQTL. We will also show VIEWpoly new features such as its integration with HIDECAN package.
