Detailed information about this course:
Faculty: Prof. Cornelia van Duijn, Ir. PhD
This course aims to give a basic introduction to various methods used in classical genetic epidemiology. In combination with the course Genomics in Molecular Medicine and Genome Wide Association Studies, the course offers an excellent introduction to genetic epidemiologic research. The course targets epidemiologists, clinicians and molecular biologists with no background in genetic epidemiology. Participants are introduced to the basic principles of population genetics, segregation, linkage and association analyses. The relevant background of human genetics and statistics is presented. The goal of the course is that participants are able to interpret the findings in modern genetic research.
