- 2013 Network Analysis Short Course
15 - 19 July 2013
Los Angeles, California
Hosted by UCLA
This five full-day intensive course will cover network analysis methods widely used in systems biologic and systems genetic applications. The goal of the network analysis workshop is to familiarize researchers with network methods and software for integrating genomic data sets with complex phenotype data. Students will learn how to integrate disparate data sets (genetic variation, gene expression, protein interaction networks, complex phenotypes, gene ontology information) and use networks for identifying disease genes, pathways and key regulators.
- 2013 Statistical Genetics Short Course
Statistical Genetics Short Course - featuring Mendel software9 - 13 September 2013
This five full-day intensive course will cover state-of-the-art statistical genetics methods for detection of genetic loci for complex traits, either qualitative or quantitative. Each day will include hands-on computer exercises using statistical genetics computer programs, especially the Mendel software package. We will cover the general theory behind the methods as well as emphasize the practical aspects needed to give the best chances of success. The methods covered are appropriate to both human and non-human populations.
- Wellcome Trust Advanced Course on Disease Gene Mapping
Human Genome Analysis: Genetic Analysis of Multifactorial DiseasesSaturday - Friday, July 24 - 30, 2013
near Cambridge, England
This advanced course covers statistical methods currently used to map disease susceptibility genes, with an emphasis on (but not limited to) methods that can analyse family data or a combination of families and individuals. Discussions of the latest statistical methodology are complemented by practical hands-on computer exercises using state-of-the-art software. The statistical basics behind each method will be carefully explained so that participants with a non-statistical background can understand. The course will also feature a panel of distinguished guest speakers.
