Quality control and its importance in GWAS

In the fourth of a series of seven H3ABioNet online lectures for Genome Wide Association Studies (GWAS), the importance of doing good quality control for a GWAS will be discussed. The lecture will cover the types of errors one should control for, the specific bioinformatics tools used for quality control. Specific sample and SNP quality control steps that should be undertaken in a GWAS will be explored using specific examples.
