Joint UCLA & University of Colorado Anschutz Statistical Genetics Course & Programming Workshop
Dates: Monday, September 18 - Friday, September 22
Location: University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus
Hosted by: The Division of Biomedical Informatics and Personalized Medicine, Department of Medicine, University of Colorado Anschutz
Participants may attend either the short course, or the programming workshop, or both.
Monday, September 18 - Wednesday, September 20
The statistical genetics course will cover state-of-the-art statistical methods for detection of genetic loci influencing complex traits. Each day will include discussions of analysis theory and hands-on computer exercises, focusing on the Mendel statistical genetics package. We will stress interpretation of results and emphasize the practical aspects needed to give the best chances of success. The course is designed for people who are actively studying the genetics of complex traits. No prior experience with these methods is necessary.
Topics will include:
Thursday, September 21 - Friday, September 22
This workshop will focus on OpenMendel, the new open source Julia language version of the Mendel statistical genetics package. The Workshop will give an introduction into using the new Julia programming language. Julia, developed at MIT, is a modern version of R, designed to be very easy to program, extremely fast, and able to handle the large data sets common in modern big data science. The workshop will cover methods for extending and customizing the Julia code. The workshop is designed for bioinformaticians and statisticians who are actively studying the genetics of complex traits. Participants should have some familiarity with programming environments such as R, MATLAB, or Python.
