Title: What can we learn from human genomics at scale and how do we get there?

Abstract:
The increasing availability of human genomic data opens up new avenues for the study of medical and evolutionary questions. I will discuss statistical approaches to identifying disease-associated genetic variants in biobank-scale data and new approaches to estimating the impact of natural selection on contemporary human populations. I will then discuss methods for using ultra-low-coverage sequencing as a discovery tool in large genomics studies

 Light refreshments will be provided at reception from 4:00pm - 4:30pm, 125 LKS foyer.
