Biostatistics Workshop on Genetic Association Studies
13 Nov 2019 to 14 Nov 2019
9:00am - 4:00pm
Organized by: 
Pharmacogenomics Laboratory, Department of Pharmacology, Faculty of Medicine, University of Malaya

Analysis of single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) and copy number variant (CNV) data is always challenging even when you have a basic knowledge on the application of statistical tools. Without proper understanding of the coding, design and data interpretation, researchers tend to make mistakes. Despite many biostatistics workshops out there, few are designed for genetic association studies. The Biostatistics Workshop aims to train young researchers to handle genetic data with confidence. Participants will be taught to assign a proper coding, choose the right statistical design for different research objectives, learn step-by-step in data analysis from demographic data analysis until detailed analysis as seen in a complete full text article, and read and replicate other researchers’ statistical methods. There will also be a session where participants will get a chance to view some of the reviewers’ comments on statistical design and how to answer them. 

  Participation Fee:   

  RM200 (Student)
