genomeSophisticated statistical analysis is needed to process the data being generated to uncover the genetic components of many complex human disorders and quantitative traits.

The University of Alabama at Birmingham School of Public Health Department of Biostatistics offers a National Institute of General Medical Sciences (NIGMS) Short Course on Statistical Genetics & Genomics to help provide that training for students, post-doctoral fellows, faculty investigators and clinical researchers,

The courses will be taught by leading experts in statistical genetics and genomics; approximately 50 students will attend each course. Each five-day course will provide substantial hands-on computer training that will enable investigators to participate in, contribute to and lead such research. Lectures will be supplemented with extensive discussion sessions, handouts, presentation of examples and interactive demonstrations of statistical genetic data analyses.

Applications for the NIGMS Short Course on Statistical Genetics & Genomics will be accepted until May 23. Travel fellowships are available for graduate students, post-doctoral fellows and early investigators; restrictions apply. The course will be held July 7-11.

The application and a full agenda are available online.
