Design and Analysis of Genetic-based Association Studies

  February 08, 2011  
Wellcome Trust Genome Campus, Hinxton, Cambridge, UK
26-30 September 2011

This residential workshop aims to give researchers involved in disease studies a firm grounding in the use of the latest statistical methods and software for analysis of genetic association studies. The course will cover both theoretical and practical aspects of the design and analysis of such studies. Each topic will include a lecture followed by a practical session in which state-of-the-art statistical software will be applied to relevant datasets. The practical sessions will illustrate the ideas presented in the lectures. All the software used will be freely available so skills learnt can be applied to the datasets after the course.
