Genomic Epidemiology in Africa (Entebbe, Uganda): 15-20 September 2013

Applications are invited for this free Wellcome Trust course. The course aims to describe the key aspects of human population genetics and genome-wide association studies (GWAS) so that participants will be able to perform analyses of their own research. We will cover both theoretical and practical issues of genetic epidemiology via association analysis, illustrating particular concepts with examples from recent studies in type 2 diabetes, sickle cell disease and malaria.

The course is free to attend. Financial assistance is also available to cover travel and accommodation costs. Full course and application details can be found here. Applications and bursary requests must be received by Friday 7 June.
