1. Why you should attend: Exciting "hands-on" presentation of next-generation data sets and Systems Genetics using by Robert W. Williams, the founder of the Complex Trait Consortium, and leader of GeneNetwork, and Professor Lu Lu—creator of the extended family of BXD strains of mice. Presentation will be mainly in English, but Prof. Lu will translate and help you 1-on-1. 2. What you will learn: (1) How to use carry out GWAS and linkage analysis (QTL mapping) in minutes rather than years using GeneNetwork and data from human, mouse, and plant populations. (2) More about the likely future of genetics and Phenome-Wide Association Studies (PWAS). (3) How to perform sophisticated genetic analysis of massive gene expression and RNA-seq data sets for mouse and human. (4) How to combine phenotype data with DNA sequence (genotype arrays), RNA-seq, proteomics, and metabolic data (Phenomes) to jointly study genome-to-phenome relations. (5) How to get open access to sophisticated computer code and data for clients and colleagues. 3.
