The 20th Summer Institute in Statistical Genetics (SISG 2015) will be held at the University of Washington in Seattle, Washington during July 6-24, 2015. The Institute consists of a series of two-and-a-half day workshops designed to introduce geneticists to modern methods of statistical analysis and to introduce statisticians to the statistical challenges posed by modern genetic data. Prerequisites are minimal, and the modular nature of the Institute enables participants to design a program best suited to their backgrounds and interests. Most participants take two or three modules.
Individuals attending the Institute will receive certificates of course completion in recognition of their participation.
In 2015, UW Biostatistics will host four Summer Institutes in Seattle. Details about the other three Summer Institutes can be found on their respective web sites as follows:
The SISG 2015 modules are timed such that participants may also attend SISMID 2015 or SISBID 2015 modules. Registration for each institute’s modules can only be done through that institute’s site.
