This workshop will offer a series of lectures on the theoretical background of statistical genomics – with a focus on genome-wide-association studies (GWAS). Students will also present and discuss recent GWAS papers. This will be accompanied by practical hands-on exercises using the PLINK software. Herefore, please bring your laptop and install PLINK (https://www.cog-genomics.org/plink/) before the course. More information on the exercises will be shared shortly before the course.
- History of GWAS
- Genetic variation
- QC of GWAS
- Statistical association analysis in GWAS
- Post-GWAS analyses
- Short overview on other common omics approaches
This course provides an overview of basic statistical concepts of GWAS. After this course, you should be able to critically evaluate published GWAS papers and have a main idea of which steps are important to conduct a GWAS yourself.
