| The SeattleSNPs workshop is based on our highly successful
Variation Workshop held each year in Seattle (see http://pga.gs.washington.edu/education.html#2005),
which focuses on the use and application of human polymorphism
databases, including SeattleSNPs, in genetic analysis,
the latest approaches for SNP discovery, linkage diseqilibrium
and haplotype analysis along with the latest strategies
for selecting TagSNPs, and the practical application
of available software tools for data analysis at all
levels, including association analysis.
|The workshop may be a full two days with several interactive
tutorials, or a condensed one-day session. The two-day workshop
includes interactive sessions and casestudy presentations;
the one-day workshop consists of presentations
by SeattleSNPs researchers but would not include interactive
|Institutions and groups interested in hosting a workshop
must meet the following qualifications:
|1. The host group group or institution should
provide evidence of a strong research community investigating
heart, lung and blood disorders (a documented and strong
emphasis in any one of these three areas is sufficient).
|2. The host can provide assurance of its capacity
to support the workshop, including:
- Facilities that can accomodate up to 50 attendees,
