Genomics for Social Scientists

a Workshop

Monday, 6/18/2018 to 6/22/2018.   ARCHIVED EVENT

Location: Institute for Social Research, University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, MI 48104

The purpose of this workshop is to familiarize researchers with genetic data and provide instruction on how to incorporate genetic information into social science analyses. This one-week genomic data workshop will focus on providing hands-on training for researchers working at the intersection of genetics and social science research, using data from the Health and Retirement Study (HRS) as a model. Using tutorial versions of the HRS core survey data and HRS genetic data files, the workshop will instruct on several current methods of genomic analyses. Lectures will also discuss issues surrounding collection of samples, working with labs, ethics, and collaboration with biological experts. A key component of this workshop is the opportunity for interdisciplinary collaboration among attendees, with University of Michigan investigators, and course instructors.

This year's guest speakers include:

Pam Herd, Professor of Public Affairs and Sociology University of Wisconsin - Madison
Principal Investigator, Wisconsin Longitudinal Study

Ben Domingue, Assistant Professor, Stanford

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.

This course is supported by a grant from the National Institutes of Health (NIH) - National Institute on Aging (NIA) R25 AG 053227

Hosted by the Survey Research Center, Institute for Social Research, University of Michigan, Ann Arbor.
