End: Monday, 03 September 2018 @ 16:30

Timezone: Central African Time (CAT)

Sponsors: H3ABioNet

Scientific topic: Genotyping experiment, Bioinformatics, GWAS study, Population genetics, Population genomics

Target audience:
  • Anyone intersted in GWAS and using the H3Africa genotyping chip
Description:

Population structure in GWAS

The fifth of a series of seven H3ABioNet online lectures for Genome Wide Association Studies (GWAS) will introduce the concept of population structure/stratification (PS) and suggest why it is critical to consider PS in a GWAS. The lecture will begin by familiarizing the types of PS that are encountered and explain the factors that could cause them to appear in a GWAS dataset. It will then cover the methods that are commonly used to identify PS in a dataset and finally discuss the available computational approaches to correct for PS in a GWAS.

Date: 3rd September 2018
Time: 2pm WAT / 3pm CAT / 4pm EAT

Event type:
  • Meetings and conferences
  • Workshops and courses

Capacity: 150

Eligibility:
  • First come first served

Keywords: Population structure, GWAS, Correct for population structure, H3ABioNet, H3Africa, AWI-GEN
