CfS Research Afternoon: Statistical challenges in large-scale genetic studies

About the event

The event will showcase

(i) statistical methods for large-scale genetic studies, and

(ii) genetic studies that require modern statistical approaches.

Our aim overall is to stimulate discussion and interaction between statisticians and researchers in genetics that will then draw the two fields closer together and potentially catalyse new collaborations.

The event will feature visitor Ken Rice (University of Washington), who will also present a short course on Meta-Analysis during his visit.
