Course Overview

Genome-wide association studies have become increasingly popular to identify associations between genetic risk factors and phenotypic traits.

This introductory course is addressed to medical students, social scientists and biologists without formal training in the field. The aim of the course is to provide a guideline for conducting genetic analyses. In addition to the illustration of the standard GWAS process, we will also show how to perform functional enrichment and apply polygenic risk score (PRS) analysis in order to provide individual‐level scores of genetic risk.

A mix of theoretical background and hands‐on experience will walk students through a series of increasingly complex data manipulation and visualization tasks. These exercises will be based on PLINK, PRSice, and R, among others, which are commonly used, freely available software tools that are accessible for novice users.

This course is organized by Transmitting Science.
