About

The Gene Mapping course from Aarhus University provides fundamental statistical concepts and tools relevant to the analysis of genetic data arising from population-based association studies collected in gene mapping research. 

Visit the official programme website for more information

Overview

Key Features

General concept and statistical models for gene mapping , imputation of genotypes, reconstruction of haplotype phases, identity by descent, models and methods for population-based association mapping. Methods to control false discovery in association studies – multiple testing and population structure. Gene mapping methods include single-marker regression, mixed linear model, affected sib-pair, transmission disequilibrium test and methods that include pedigree information and population structure. Meta-analysis in GWAS. Polygenic prediction of phenotype.

The students are acquainted with methods to identify genetic polymorphisms or single genes that contribute individually to disease status or quantitative traits in human and agricultural species. There is a strong element of hands-on analyses of real-world datasets using R and other commonly used software in this field.

After successfully completing this Gene Mapping course from Aarhus University the student should be able to:

  • Evaluate the nature of genotype and phenotype data used in association gene mapping.
  • Explain statistical methods and basic genetic concepts related to association gene mapping.
  • Discuss the advantages and limitations of key statistical models for association analyses.
  • Apply suitable gene mapping method(s) depending on the experimental setup, use statistical packages appropriately for the analysis and represent data/results graphically.
  • Communicate the results of statistical analysis of genetic data clearly and accurately.
