PSYC 5112
Statistical Genetics for Complex Traits
Fall 2008
Matt McQueen
The focus of this course will be on the methods for mapping complex disease genes in both population-based and family-based samples.  Topics will include both linkage and association analyses of qualitative and quantitative phenotypes, with an emphasis on their application to empirical data using available computer software.  Students will be exposed to the latest statistical methodology and computational resources for mapping genes underlying complex traits.  They will also read and evaluate current statistical human genetics literature.
