Introduction to Genome-Wide Data Analysis
July 6-10, 2020 in Amsterdam, Zuidas
This interdisciplinary summer course 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 course welcomes (research) master students, PhD students, post-docs, and professionals from various disciplines (e.g. behavioral genetics, economics, medicine, sociology, political sciences, and psychology) who are interested in learning state-of-the-art methods for genome-wide data analysis.
For information about the programme, please find this year’s syllabus here.
A formal background in statistics or econometrics is required from students (at the level of a first-year course, in a graduate school or PhD program, in economics, psychology, or epidemiology), but no formal training in genetics will be assumed. The course is taught in English and will be accessible to students from both in- and outside the Netherlands.
