Sociogenomics & Polygenic Scores
March 16, 2021
PDHP begins our 2021 workshop series on March 16th, with a workshop entitled Sociogenomics & Polygenic Scores, co-presented by Ben Domingue of Stanford University’s Graduate School of Education and Erin Ware of the University of Michigan Population Neurodevelopment & Genetics Group. This half-day workshop is geared toward data analysts interested in combining social science and genetic analysis, and will provide information on the recent history of sociogenomics and a novel approach for examining gene-by-environment interactions, as well as hands-on practice with state-of-art techniques in the field (including creating polygenic scores from simulated plink data using a high-performance computing environment).
- Recent history of sociogenomics
- A novel approach for examining gene-by-environment interactions
- Hands-on introduction to high-performance computing and genetic data types
- Computation of polygenic scores using PRSice2 software
