Introduction in Genome-Wide Data Analysis

July 22-26, 2019 in Amsterdam

This interdisciplinary summer school will attempt to “bridge” specific knowledge gaps that participants from different backgrounds may have. Specifically, social scientists will get a short, formal introduction to genetics, while students from medicine or genetics will benefit from the formal treatment of statistical methods and the discussion of how investigating the genetics of social scientific outcomes may lead to medically relevant insights.


The summer school welcomes (research) master students, PhD students, post-docs and professionals from various disciplines (e.g. behavioral genetics, economics, medicine, sociology, political sciences, psychology) who are interested in learning state-of-the art methods for genome-wide data analysis.

The course is taught in English and will be accessible to students from both in- and outside the Netherlands.
