This is an archive containing training materials for the H3ABioNet course: “Introduction to Biostatistics for Genome Wide Association Testing”.

Brief description of the course:

The “Introduction to Biostatistics for Genome Wide Association testing” workshop provides an introduction to the basic concepts in biostatistics required for genome wide association studies, e.g. data types, experimental design, statistical tests, probabilities, R, etc. During the second week, basic statistical concepts relevant to population genetics and genome wide association tests will be introduced to build foundational knowledge for genome wide association studies. The workshop will consist of a series of theory and lectures during the morning sessions and “hands on” practical lab sessions during the afternoon periods.

Intended Audience: This workshop is aimed at H3Africa project members who will be involved in the design and analyses of population data and genome wide association testing, and those who need statistical skills for their research.
