The Functional Genetics Boot Camp is a two-day intensive boot camp of seminars and hands-on analytical sessions to provide an overview of concepts and data analysis methods for computational integration of genome and transcriptome data to characterize molecular effects of genetic variants.
This workshop will provide a rigorous introduction to concepts and analytical methods to map and characterize molecular effects of genetic variants by integration of large-scale genetic and transcriptome data. Led by world experts in functional genomics, human genetics, and statistical methods development, the workshop will integrate seminar lectures with hands-on computer lab sessions to put concepts into practice. The workshop will focus on genetic effects on gene regulation and guide the participants not only in analytical methods but also the use of major resource data sets like GTEx.
There is a limited capacity for the Boot Camp. Investigators at all career stages are welcome to attend, and we particularly encourage trainees and early-stage investigators to participate.
