Course: Introduction to genome-wide association studies (GWAS)


When: 9-13 September 2019


Where: Universite Laval, Quebec City, Canada


Course website: https://www.physalia-courses.org/courses-workshops/course49/


Registration dealine: August 4th, 2019


OVERVIEW: This course will introduce students, researchers and professionals to the steps needed to build an analysis pipeline for Genome-Wide Association Studies (GWAS). The course will, on one hand, describe all the necessary steps involved in a typical GWAS study; on the other hand, we will build a reusable and reproducible GWAS pipeline.


FORMAT: The course is structured in modules over five days. Each day will include introductory lectures with class discussions of key concepts. The remainder of each day will consist of practical hands-on sessions. These sessions will involve a combination of both mirroring exercises with the instructor to demonstrate a skill as well as applying these skills on your own to complete individual exercises. After and during each exercise, results will be interpreted and discussed in group.


TARGETED AUDIENCE & ASSUMED BACKGROUND: The course is aimed at students, researchers and professionals interested in learning how to build a structured pipeline for semi-automated and reproducibile GWAS analyses. It will include information useful for both beginners and more advanced users. We will start by introducing general concepts of GWAS and bioinformatics pipeline building, progressively describing all steps and putting there seamlessy together in a general workflow. Attendees should have a background in biology, specifically genetics; previous exposure to GWAS experiments would also be beneficial.
