A course with Jupyter Notebooks for Computational Population Genetics
by Stephan Schiffels
Disclaimer: This is still work in progress.
This repository contains several Jupyter Notebooks that I have used in the past for teaching various elements of population-genetic data analyses to students with no initial training in population genetics or Unix-based data analysis. It is definitely not yet fully self-contained and needs an experienced instructor to go through.
Having said that, for someone reasonably experienced with Unix, it is possible to go through the chapters yourself. In that case, here are a few steps for settup up your enviroment to make these work:
- Install Jupyter notebooks with Bash extension. You will also need Eigensoft and ADMIXTOOLS.
- Clone this repository in your home directory running
git clone https://github.com/stschiff/popgen_course.git
- Download the genotype data needed for these exercises from here. In my notebooks, I assume that this data has been downloaded into the directory
Having Jupyter installed, you can now simply open the Notebooks directly from within Jupyter, or you can access static versions of them here:
