This course is mainly designed for scientists (MSc, PhD students, postdoctoral fellows as well as staff members) who have an interest in moving into this field, or are specializing in this domain.

Main topics you will learn about:

· Design of genomic studies, analysis of large data source, patient phenotyping
· Advances in next generation sequencing and sequence data analysis, analysis of the MHC and other complex genomic regions
· Human population genetics, Mendelian randomization and other statistical techniques

Breakfast and lunch will be provided.
Space is limited.
