STAT 8750 - Introduction to Genetic Analysis

In addition to providing a basic introduction to genetics, this course also aims to connect fundamental principles of biology and genetics, and evolution to mathematical and statistical models used in genetic research. This course is a prerequisite for more advanced courses in statistical and population genetics (e.g. genetic analysis laboratory, statistical aspects of human population genetics, genetics in epidemiology, and theoretical basis of genetic analysis). By the end of the course, students are expected to have acquired a genetics vocabulary, to be familiar with single locus and multilocus inheritance, to have a broad understanding of the different types of genetic variation and how each could contribute to phenotypic variation in heritable traits, and most importantly, to have a basic understanding of how any of these concepts could be quantified in statistical and/or mathematical models. The course format will consist of lectures, discussions, and homework assignments.
