ANN ARBOR – Researchers from the University of Michigan invite you to apply to the 4th annual Genomics for Social Scientists workshop, held at the University of Michigan June 15-19, 2020. The purpose of this NIA-sponsored workshop is to familiarize researchers with genetic data and provide hands-on training on incorporating genetic information into social science analyses. Using both lecture and lab formats, participants will use tutorial versions of the Health and Retirement Study core survey data and genetic data files. The week-long workshop will offer a multitude of opportunities for interdisciplinary collaboration among attendees and feedback from University of Michigan investigators and course instructors.
