Course - Durban, South Africa
Large-scale genetic studies of human populations have become a powerful tool for understanding resistance and susceptibility to disease. There is growing interest among medical researchers in Africa in applying these new methodologies to gain a better understanding of common diseases that affect African populations. This computational course aims to describe the key aspects of human population genetics and genome-wide association studies (GWAS) so that participants will be able to perform analyses of their own research. The programme will cover both theoretical and practical issues of genetic epidemiology via association analysis, illustrating particular concepts with examples from recent studies in type 2 diabetes, sickle cell disease and malaria.
