Student Seminar by Chris Salahub, PhD in Statistics

A statistician's introduction to genomics

A classical model of genetic association is introduced alongside a short history of its development with a particular focus on mouse models. The inferential consequences of the widespread use of mouse models are discussed, and the modern application of this model is introduced as a problem of measuring pairwise associations in a large data set. A broad algebraic framework for this model and others like it is used to demonstrate several results and suggest future avenues of investigation.
