Tutorial Details: Single Nucleotide Polymorphisms (SNP) Associations Analysis Using HelixTree Software

Date: Thursday, April 24, 2008, 01:00 pm - 03:00 pm

Instructor(s): Wayne Xu, MSI

Single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNP) make individuals different (color, susceptibility to diseases, productivity, etc.). However, there are millions of SNPs in humans. Which SNPs are associated with particular phenotypes? HelixTree is a powerful software tool for studying SNP association with disease or drug response. It also analyzes single marker and haplotype, calculates LD and HWE, identifies tagging SNPs, and more.

In this tutorial, we will walk through this software using sample data.
