Introductory Genomics Workshop 7/2023 Recording and Materials

  • Updated

This article contains all the information users may require to follow along for the introductory genomics workshop hosted on July 12th and July 13th by our research support team.




This video demonstrates how to perform a GWAS on the Researcher Workbench. It involves 4 exercises: duplicating the workspace, examining genomic data, extracting phenotypic data, and then performing the GWAS. This is a recording of a 2-day virtual genomics workshop our support team hosted in July 2023 that has been edited for time and clarity. Time stamps of different sections are listed below. In addition to being a useful resource about genomic data, it's a great introduction for new users who want to learn how to use the Cohort and Dataset Builders (exercise 3).
