Chitwan Valley Family Study (CVFS) Webinar Series

Applying Polygenic Scores to Study Genetic Correlates of Health, Behavior, and Environment
Wednesday, January 24, 2024
2:00-3:00 PM
Off Campus Location
This webinar will update the use of polygenic scores in the CVFS. This includes novel techniques for generating multi-ethnic polygenic scores, the use of traditional scores in novel populations, using polygenic scores to examine gene-environment correlation, and finally the applications of family models (trios, parent-child, and sibling models) to better estimate genetic effects. There will be a Q&A session after the presentation.

The webinar will be hosted using Zoom. Registration is required to attend the webinar. Support provided by NICHD (R25 HD101358).
