15th Course “SNPs and Human Diseases”
November 12 - November 16
An advanced course on complex genetics will take place 12-16 November 2018, in Rotterdam.
The analysis of DNA variations, including Single Nucleotide Polymorphisms (SNPs), is a standard research approach to understand causes of disease, in particular the so-called “complex” diseases such as diabetes, osteoporosis, cancer, Alzheimer disease, etc. The field is changing fast with large scale projects and novel technology being continuously introduced, including Next Generation Sequencing.
The aim of the course is to give a broad introduction in SNP techniques and applications. It is recommended for the participants of the SNP course to have basic knowledge of the central molecular biological dogmas.
The course is organized in close cooperation with and under auspices of Research School Nihes.
On the first 4 days “learning-by-doing” sessions on the bio-informatic and statistical analysis in this field are organized. On the last 2 days, key note speakers are scheduled. Read more
