Workshop “Phenotype Prediction using Genomic Data” [ONLINE] – August 11th, 2014

“Many important traits in livestock, agriculture and human health have a quantitative genetic inheritance. Great advances have been achieved in genetics and statistics, which provided analytical methodologies (i.e. genome-wide prediction) that permit a better understanding and prediction of these complex traits. The objective of this workshop is to present and discuss recent results and theoretical developments of statistical models used to predict the phenotype of complex traits using genomic data. We welcome you to attend four talks that will include results from humans, trees, crops and livestock.”
