Our next advanced linkage courses will be held on the following
dates (each is from Monday through Friday):

October 3-7, 1994   University of Zurich, Irchel Campus computer
                    center (held jointly with Prof. E. Kubli). 
                    Maximum number of participants: 14

January 9-13, 1995  Columbia University, New York, microcomputer
                    classroom of Hammer Health Sciences Center. 
                    This course is supported by the U.S. National
                    Center for Human Genome Research and can
                    admit only a limited number of participants
                    outside of a U.S. institution.
                    Maximum number of participants:  20

TOPICS include (the same in each of the two courses):  The
LINKAGE and other computer programs, theory and practice. 
Handling of inbreeding loops.  Age-dependent penetrance and age
at disease onset.  Sex-specific recombination fractions.  Models
of genetic heterogeneity.  Analysis of complex diseases.  Allelic
association (disequilibrium).  Nonparametric linkage analysis. 
Two-locus models of inheritance.  Computer simulation.

Participants must be familiar with IBM PCs or compatible micro-
computers.  Good experience with a linkage program and/or a good
background in statistical genetics and linkage analysis are
additional criteria for admission.
