Workshop: Genomics for Social Scientists

Genomics for Social Scientists

June 7-11, 2021

Hosted by the Survey Research Center,
Institute for Social Research, University of Michigan
Maximum 30 participants

Applications for June 2021 are closed.

Researchers from the University of Michigan invite you to apply to the 5th annual Genomics for Social Scientists workshop, which will be held virtually June 7-11, 2021. The purpose of this NIA-sponsored workshop is to familiarize researchers with genetic data and provide hands-on training on incorporating genetic information into social science analyses. Using both lecture and lab formats, participants will use tutorial versions of the Health and Retirement Study core survey data and genetic data files. The week-long workshop will offer a multitude of opportunities for interdisciplinary collaboration among attendees and feedback from University of Michigan investigators and course instructors. This course is designed to primarily benefit researchers who already have experience conducting statistical examinations of behavioral traits, but who may have little or no genetic or biological training. Investigators interested in a better understanding of genomic analysis as it applies to social and behavioral science research are encouraged to apply.
