One of the biggest problems in biology is the mapping of genotype to phenotype – what are the underlying genetic factors and their interactions that give rise to the phenotypes we observe? Most traits, from diseases to commercially relevant phenotypes of domestic organisms to evolutionarily adaptive properties, are due to complex combinations of many segregating genetic variants, and the interactions among these and with the environment.

This interdisciplinary workshop aims to attract participants with a broad range of interests in complex traits, from model organisms to human diseases, evolution and development, epidemiology and statistical analysis.

The event will be of interest to several themes within the College as well as to colleagues from the College of Science and Engineering. We are fortunate to have Prof Jonathan Flint as our external speaker.
