Colloquium: “Introduction to Genetic Epidemiology in GWAS era”

Marshall University Math Colloquium
March 7, 2016

Shubhabrata (Joey) Mukherjee
University of Washington, Seattle

Genetic epidemiology holds great potential for personalized medicine and improved biological knowledge of disease pathogenesis. In this talk, I will introduce some basic concepts needed to understand, analyze, and interpret Genome-wide Association Studies (GWAS) data with late-onset Alzheimer’s disease (LOAD) as an example. I will briefly talk about extending these results to gene-wide and network/pathway-based analysis, which are complementary to GWASs.
