In this two-week program, we will focus on the advances in statistical genetics/genomics from both the applied and theoretical perspectives. The specific goal of the proposed workshop will be to equip researchers in genetic-related fields with the cutting-edge methods to better conduct genetic studies as biomedical research including genetic/genomic studies is one of the primary research areas supported by Singapore.

The themes will include the advances in statistical genetics and high-dimensional regression in genetics/genomics as follows:

  1. Integrative analysis of genetics/genomics:
    • Statistical methods leveraging transcriptome information;
    • Statistical methods integrating different types of genetic/genomic data;
    • Statistical methods used to make causal inference in genetic studies;
  2. The advance for high-dimensional regression in genetics/genomics.


Two-week integrated workshop with diverse topics.
