Description

Genes and Complex Human Phenotypes: A Research Workshop

UC Berkeley, May 26-27, 2016

Genetic analyses of human traits, health-related and others, are now widely researched using a torrent of new data (e.g., single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs), gene sequences, exome sequences, transciptomes, etc.). But gene-centric approaches often contrast with social and epidemiological approaches that emphasize environmental factors.

With co-sponsorship from Berkeley’s Center on the Economics and Demography of Aging and Stanford’s Center on Population Health, a two-day gathering of active researchers will present current work and discuss core issues in the field, including: (a) genetic data and cross-country comparisons on human cohorts, existing and future; (b) analytical methods, strengths, limitations; (c) known results, open questions; (d) the connections between these, e.g., population and personalized genetics, the roles of selection vs. migration in shaping human diversity.

In addition to invited presenters and discussants, attendance is welcome by faculty, researchers, and advanced graduate students from Berkeley, Stanford, and other institutions. Breakfast and lunch will be served at the conference site. Pre-registration is required.
