UAB's 2nd Annual NIGMS-funded Short Course on Statistical Genetics & Genomics
July 9-13, 2012 Birmingham, AL
The University of Alabama at Birmingham's Section on Statistical
Genetics is pleased to announce the 2nd Annual NIGMS-funded Short
Course on Statistical Genetics & Genomics in Birmingham, AL on July 9 -
13, 2012. Focusing on the state-of-art methodology to analyze complex
traits, this five-day course will offer an interactive program to
enhance researchers' ability to understand & use statistical genetic
methods, as well as implement & interpret sophisticated genetic
analyses. Limited number of Travel Fellowships available, see website
for details. Only participants residing in the US are eligible for
Topics to include:
Intro (Genetics & Genomics; Biostatistics); GWAS
Design/Analysis/Interpretation; Structural Variation & Human Diseases;
Epigenomics methods; Microarrays and RNAseq: technologies and data
processing; Design and analysis of gene expression experiments ; Rare
Variants & Exome Sequencing; Pharmacogenetics/Pharmacogenomics; Whole
Genome Prediction; Integrating different data domains; GWAS Pathway
Intro R & Bioconductor; PLINK, PENNCNV, Epigenetic Analysis; IMPUTE2;
ChiP Seq Software (DIME); RMANOVA and HDBSTAT; Ingenuity Pathways
Analysis (IPA) - and others!
To insure the depth and practicality of the training program, we will
provide 10 laptops to students or student pairs in the classroom. Each
computer will be loaded with the required statistical software.
Participants are encouraged to bring their laptop. Many of the faculty
have substantial expertise with the use of software for statistical
genetics and have even authored some.
