Sociogenomics & Polygenic Scores
Ben Domingue & Erin Ware
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
Slides & Lab Materials:
Part 1 slides (by Ben Domingue)
Part 2 slides (by Erin Ware)
The lab portion of this workshop will require connection to a ready-made Linux environment containing all necessary software (namely PRSice2).
- RDP file for connecting to the Linux environment (works for Windows and Mac – login credentials will be provided during the workshop).
- Lab code (also included in Part 2 slides above)
