Statistical Genetics Journal Club
The goal of the journal club is to foster discussion of current issues in statistical genetics, with primary emphasis on methods for finding genes for complex diseases and on descriptive and quantitative studies of the genome. Each week we read and discuss a relevant article from the recent literature. All interested individuals are encouraged to attend.
Meeting schedule and place
During the Fall 2006 semester, the Statistical Genetics Journal Club meets twice a month on Wednesday from 4:10-5:00 pm, in room M4134, SPH II (unless otheriwse specified). If you would like to receive a biweekly e-mail announcement, please contact Laura Scott at firstname.lastname@example.org or 763-0006.
Topics of discussion will likely include: linkage disequilibrium mapping, local and global patterns of linkage disequilibrium, haplotype frequency estimation, methods for linkage and QTL analysis, methods for association analysis, gene conversion, and molecular methods for identifying functional variants

Journal articles are chosen by the presenters. Presenters include students, postdoctoral fellows, staff and faculty from a variety of departments including but not limited to Biostatistics, Epidemiology, and Human Genetics.
