330.619.01 ANALYTIC STRATEGIES IN THE GENETICS OF PSYCHIATRIC, BEHAVIORAL AND OTHER COMPLEX DISEASES
Addresses the rapidly changing landscape of the study of complex genetics diseases. Students explore the current state of the quantitative issues in complex disease genetics, so that they can translate their experiences into research practice. Analyzes genome-wide association scans, epigenetics, and next-generation sequencing, as well as approaches to power calculation, including the use of simulation. Students study the current literature as well as examples from real data sets. In addition to learning the analytic techniques, students also become familiar with the assumptions and limitations of these approaches.
