• Workshop-GWAS (Genome-Wide Association Studies)

    Genome-wide association studies (GWAS) workshop focus on genomic models and methods and their application in breeding. The workshop uses a strong practical component with computer exercises and a real data set of an agronomic complex trait

    Product details and features

    To take advantage of this workshop and implement GWAS, the user must have:

    1. Basic computational knowledge.
    2. Moderate level of computer quality.
    3. R program installed.
    4. Participants have to be familiar with the R programming language
    5. Basic knowledge of genetics and statistics.

    GWAS allows practical statistical inference, identification of accounting for genetic variants in target traits at the genomic level. Frequently, the GWAS analysis is a preliminary step towards the discovery of genes that determine the expression of the character of interest. After a nutshell introduction to R, the practices of the genome-wide association topic will include the process of data quality control, data filtering, linkage disequilibrium analysis, methods to detect/correct population stratification, estimation of marker effects, application of multiple testing correction and interpretation for quantitative and binary traits.
