Genome‐wide association studies (GWAS) analysis using R (online)
Association studies are a common approach used to find SNPs or genome regions that contribute to a specific disease/trait by testing for a correlation between the genomic markers and the traits of interest (disease status, milk yield, sowing to harvest time…). If an association is present, a particular SNP allele or haplotype will be seen more often than expected by chance in an individual carrying the trait.
There are two major kinds of association studies in the genomic field:
Despite its popularity association studies are challenging, as the statistical analyses must be performed carefully to avoid false positives. This course aims to be a roadmap for conducting genetic analyses in all species from scratch using R, by providing theoretical background and hands‐on experience. In order to make genome association analysis more accessible to researchers without formal bioinformatics training.
Prerequisites: Familiarity with R is required. If you lack R experience we encourage you to take our R course https://learn.thermofisher.com/europe/courses/view/id/379 before joining our GWAS analysis course.
