The H3Africa chip is being used by the H3Africa projects to generate data that will need to be analysed. The course will consist of two components; a series of online lectures provided by experts in that specific domain. These are to introduce the main concepts and theory behind population genetics and GWAS. The second part of the course for selected participants will be a practical Bring Your Own Data (BYOD) workshop on the analysis of H3Africa genotyping data using the H3ABioNet GWAS and Imputation workflows.
- Be familiar with the steps to follow when doing a GWAS association study from getting their raw dataset, genotype calling to association testing - Be familiar with the use of the H3ABioNet GWAS workflow - Be familiar with the various steps and procedures involved in imputation - Be able to undertake the downstream interpretation of their results - Be familiar with the computational infrastructure needed to undertake a GWAS analysis
