Integrated Systems Biology Analytical Methods for Epidemiological Studies of Complex Traits

Philadelphia, May 30, 2014

Advances in genomic technology and significant decrease in the associated costs are driving progress in genetic studies for disease gene identification. Studies of whole exome and genome sequences of complex traits in large samples will become increasingly common. Other sources of high-dimensional information, including expression, epigenetic, metabolic and microbiomic data, are also being commonly collected in disease and control samples. To fully understand the complex bases of human disease, all of these factors should be properly considered in a unified analytical framework, together with epidemiological data on environmental exposures and other risk factors. To discuss how to address the analytical challenges presented by these sources of data, the Center for Genetics and Complex Traits of the Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania is organizing the 2014 Mid-Atlantic Genetic Epidemiology and Statistics (MAGES) conference: Integrated systems biology analytical methods for epidemiological studies of complex traits.

The 2014 MAGES Conference is organized by the Center for Genetics and Complex Traits of the Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania. Registration is free but mandatory, and will include lunch and coffee breaks.

Organizing Committee:

  • Marcella Devoto
  • Peter Kanetsky
  • Hongzhe Li
  • Nandita Mitra
  • Adam Naj
  • Timothy Rebbeck
  • Charnita Zeigler-Johnson
