Learn to execute a successful GWAS experiment from design to analysis. This five-day online workshop will cover experimental design, data generation, and analysis on the command line. Participants will explore software and protocols, create and modify workflows, and diagnose/treat problematic data utilizing high performance computing services. Exercises will be performed on the command line with provided datasets. Visit the course website for more information.

A basic understanding of the command line and R is highly recommended for success in this course. We will conduct a very brief review on the first morning of the course, but we will not be providing full instruction in basic CLI or R. To get the maximum value out of the course, intermediate knowledge of CLI and R is needed, though beginners without this prior knowledge will still achieve a thorough understanding of GWAS, but may not be able to conduct an experiment on their own. For a thorough grounding in bioinformatics prerequisites, we recommend beginners enroll in our introductory courses in CLI and / or R.

The registration fee is $1,000 for current students, postdocs, staff and faculty at Univeristy of California campus' or UC National Labs (LBNL, LANL, LLNL), $1,200 for other academic or non-profit participants and $1,700 for other participants. We accept credit cards, as well as UC Davis recharge accounts, for payment.

This workshop will be held online from 9:00 am to 5:00 pm each day.

Registration closes on: July 16, 2021
