Advanced Genetic Epidemiology and Statistical Molecular Genetics Workshop 

WORKSHOP INFORMATION

This conference is designed to provide an overview of advanced statistical methodology for genetic studies of substance use and abuse phenotypes.  It covers analytical methods for twin and family studies, phenotyping, genome wide association, sequencing, pharmacogenomics, metabolomics and animal research.  The focus is on a hands-on approach, in which participants use their own laptop computers to implement and experiment with statistical methods described during presentations by the faculty.
