Epidemiology for Researchers Performing Genetic/Genomic Studies
Natcher Auditorium, NIH Campus
July 18, 2008
Epidemiology for Researchers Performing Genetic/Genomic Studies, was a short course for investigators and trainees doing research in human genetics, particularly studies employing genomic analyses of samples from human populations. It was conducted by the Office of Population Genomics, NHGRI, on July 18, 2008, in Natcher Auditorium, Building 45, NIH campus.
The course consisted of eight lectures aimed at familiarizing researchers studying the human genome with basic principles and potential pitfalls of epidemiology as applied to human genome research. It drew from traditional genetic epidemiology and statistical genetics, but emphasized the application of genomic technologies to unrelated subjects in human populations. Focus was on the design, conduct, analysis and interpretation of the epidemiologic studies most feasible and appropriate to address the genomic questions of interest.
These videocasts and slides are provided as an educational tool for genetic investigators interested in learning more about applying epidemiologic concepts to their work. The videocast can be found at http://videocast.nih.gov/Summary.asp?File=14595 .
