Frequently Asked Questions:

Attendance at the seminar “Statistical Methods for Genetics & Genomics – Research Seminar and Journal Club” is open. Scholars working in genetic epidemiology, statistical genetics, and related areas are welcome to attend. As well as the local University of Toronto community, we have attendees from across Canada and beyond, including faculty, post-doctoral fellows and graduate students.

The organizers, Drs. Bull and Paterson, circulate suggestions for journal club papers and call an organizational meeting in September to discuss potential topics of interest to the group for the academic year, and develop a syllabus/schedule for presentations from faculty and trainees. Priority for presentations is given to graduate students who are attending the seminar for U of T graduate course credit, and to fellows of the CANSSI STAGE training program in Genetic Epidemiology and Statistical Genetics.
