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.
