About Introduction to Statistical Methods for Gene Mapping course?

  • This data course is a primer to statistical genetics and covers an approach called linkage disequilibrium mapping, which analyzes non-familial data and has been successfully used to identify genetic variants associated with common and complex genetic traits.
  • We hope many students find this introductory course interesting and are motivated to study further topics in statistical genetics to understand biological variation from statistical standpoints.
  • Previous knowledge of molecular genetics and basic statistical concepts, such as statistical tests and estimation, is required.
  • Basic knowledge on genetic variations is offered at the start of the course.
