About

In combination with the course Searching Genes for Complex Disorders, the course offers an excellent introduction to genetic epidemiologic research for epidemiologists, clinicians and molecular biologists with no background in genetic epidemiology. Participants are introduced to the basic principles of population genetics, segregation, linkage and association analyses. The relevant background of human genetics and statistics is presented. The goal of the course is that participants are able to interpret the findings in modern genetic research.
