Summary

Exploration of human genetic variation in large-scale sequencing data.

Content

Students will be asked to access large-scale data from sequenced human exomes, to focus on one gene (or pathway) of interest, and to catalog and describe all variants present in the study population. The potential associations between the identified variants and clinically relevant phenotypes will also be explored.

Note

Note that while the course is open to all first year EPFL doctoral students, priority will be given to EDMS students, given that they are mandated to take three of EDMS practical modules. Note also that doctoral students from the Fellay laboratory cannot take this course. Access is limited to 2 students.
