Overall aim – teach students how genome-wide association studies (GWAS) are used to understand and predict complex traits.
Objective 1 - teach students the methods being used to analyse GWAS. These will include both basic analyses (e.g., quality control and single-SNP tests of association) and advanced methods (e.g., heritability analyses).
Objective 2 - teach students how to construct prediction models (i.e., to be able to predict an individual’s risk of developing a disease, given their genetic information).
Objective 3 – teach students how to use popular genetic software.
To apply for the course you must either be enrolled in a master's degree, have a master's degree or have passed a qualifying entry examination.
