The "Introduction to Biostatistics for Genome Wide Association testing" workshop provides an introduction to the basic concepts in biostatistics required for genome wide association studies, e.g. data types, experimental design, statistical tests, probabilities, R, etc. During the second week, basic statistical concepts relevant to population genetics and genome wide association tests will be introduced to build foundational knowledge for genome wide association studies. The workshop will consist of a series of theory and lectures during the morning sessions and ?hands on? practical lab sessions during the afternoon periods.
