January 30-31, 2006
Research Triangle Park, North Carolina
Presenter: Debbie Nickerson, Ph.D.
Hosts: David Schwartz, M.D., M.P.H. and Samuel Wilson, M.D.
This workshop will provide an overview of the latest approaches for identifying and genotyping single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) and evaluating genetic associations across the human genome. Topics include the extraction of SNP data from public resources, approaches for SNP discovery by re-sequencing, software tools for haplotype inference and optimal SNP selection for genotyping, platform approaches for SNP genotyping, and the analyses of these datasets for genotype-phenotype studies. The workshop will also provide opportunities for hands-on tutorials on a variety of the software tools used for variation analysis.
Registration for the workshop is now closed. There is no charge for the workshop itself; any travel and lodging expenses are the responsibility of the individuals attending the workshop.
