This two-week course presents theoretical lectures, research examples and hands-on computer training on concepts and tools used in the study of human population genomics and genetic epidemiology.
The first week consists in three days of both theoretical lectures and research examples, and two days of hands-on-computer training and discussions presenting the concepts and the technical tools used in both human population genomics and genetic epidemiology.
Topics include :
The second week consists in two days of detailed theoretical bases in population genomics and genetic epidemiology analyses and three days of practical computer-based training in the most recent concepts and analyses used in both disciplines. The practical training (computer laboratory work and discussion of the results) is based on real-data examples, using as a paradigm infectious diseases.
Topics include :
Candidates must have basic knowledge in molecular genetics, statistics and informatics.
The committee of the course will evaluate applications.
