Detailed information about the course
Bayesian Statistics for Genetics - Swiss Institute in Statistical Genetics - Module 1
4-6 September 2017
Prof. Jonathan Wakefield, University of Washington (US)
Prof. Ken Rice, University of Washington (US)
The use of Bayesian methods in genetics has a long history. In this introductory module we will begin by discussing introductory probability. We will then describe Bayesian approaches to binomial proportions, multinomial proportions, two-sample comparisons (binomial, Poisson, normal), the linear model, and Monte Carlo methods of summarization. Advanced topics will be touched on, including hierarchical models, generalized linear models, and missing data. Illustrative applications will include: Hardy-Weinberg testing and estimation, detection of allele-specific expression, QTL mapping, testing in genome-wide association studies, mixture models, multiple testing in high throughput genomics.
