June 24, 2021 | Virtual
1:00PM – 3:00PM US Central Daylight Time
This CyVerse-hosted workshop will introduce the basics of genome-wide association studies (GWAS) including the experimental design, comparisons of different GWAS models, statistical analyses and interpretation of GWAS results. The workshop will include hands-on tutorials of running GWAS with some popular software: from formatting and filtering of input phenotype data and genetic markers, parameters fine-tuning of GWAS models, visualization of GWAS results and some downstream analyses. Participants will be able to explore GWAS for their own projects with the frameworks and resources provided in this workshop.
