Yes, I do know all these style files and gif's don't work, but if I fix them, then I'll have to fix them back again, when this file goes back to Biostat.
Spring Quarter 2001
Seminar: Tuesday 4:00-5:00 in Biostat Conference Room
Reminder: Everyone should read the papers (make a copy from the copy left in the stat mailbox, or the purple biostat 580B homework folder under the biostat mailboxes). Discussion leaders are only expected to spend 15-20 minutes presenting the assigned papers. If you don't understand everything, focus on what you can, and try to think about what is important about the papers, and what open questions you are left with.
Why? What? Why? How? Why? What next? and WHY?
SEE BELOW for Announcements
Focusing on recent journal papers, we decided to address various issues in the analysis of complex traits. We will start with variance component methods (weeks 2,3,5) and then talk also about genetic vs physical distance (week 4), allele sharing methods (week 6?), gamete competion and maternal effects models (week 8?), and disequilibrium (week 9). Andrew and Stephanie will fill out the quarter.
