A Walk Through GWAS


Genome-wide association studies (GWAS) have been providing valuable insight to the genetics of common and complex diseases for many years. In this webcast we will walk through one possible workflow for completing GWAS in Golden Helix SNP & Variation Suite (SVS) with special attention paid to adjusting analysis for population stratification.

The webcast will include:

  • Visualizations including Manhattan Plots, linkage disequilibrium plots, and genomic annotation sources.
  • Quality assurance including cryptic relatedness, population stratification, as well as sample and marker statistics.
  • Genotype association tests and statistics including Corr/Trend tests, logistic and linear regression, Mixed Linear Models, and more.
