Description:
Tinbergen Institute Summer School 2017 "Introduction in Genome-Wide Data Analysis"
Location:
Amsterdam, Netherlands
Subject:
The goal of the summer school is to introduce researchers from various fields to key concepts, state-of-the-art methods, and computer tools in statistical genetics that can be applied in the social and medical sciences. The course will be highly quantitative and interactive, covering topics such as the estimation and interpretation of heritability using molecular genetic data, genetic association studies, polygenic prediction, and identification strategies to isolate causal effects using genetic insights. It will emphasize methodological issues such as appropriate study design, data integrity, multiple testing, detecting and controlling for potential confounds, as well as factors influencing the accuracy of polygenic scores. The summer school welcomes (research) master students, PhD students, post-docs, and professionals from various disciplines (e.g. behavioral genetics, economics, medicine, sociology, political sciences, psychology) who are interested in learning state-of-the art methods for genome-wide data analysis.
