Wellcome Trust Advanced Courses
An intensive, residential, computer-based course aimed at scientists actively involved in genetic analysis of multifactorial traits.
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.
