Summer Institute in Statistical Genetics at the University of Washington

by Ed Hagen last modified Feb 15, 2011 11:02 PM
The 16th Annual Summer Institute in Statistical Genetics will be held June 13-July 1, 2011, in the South Campus Center of the University of Washington in Seattle, Washington. The Institute consists of a series of two-and-a-half day workshops designed to introduce geneticists to modern methods of statistical analysis and to introduce statisticians to the statistical challenges posed by modern genetic data. Prerequisites are minimal, and the modular nature of the Institute enables participants to design a program best suited to their backgrounds and interests. Most participants take two or three modules.

Individuals attending the Institute will receive certificates of course completion in recognition of their participation.


We have recently been awarded funding by the Physical Anthropology program at NSF for our annual Summer Institute in Statistical Genetics at the University of Washington. The funding will provide tuition and travel scholarships for graduate students to attend the Institute.
