Workshop Outline:

This workshop aims at bringing together researchers from different disciplines dealing with the analysis of genetic and genomic data. Educational talks will present state-of-the-art statistical methods and demonstrate their practical application. Participants will present their own research and are encouraged to discuss open questions related to their work.

Invited Talks:

  1. Handling of cell-type heterogeneity in epigenome-wide association studies
