Statistical Causal Inference and its Applications to Genetics

July 25, 2016 - August 19, 2016

Short Thematic Program

This one-month long research program will begin with an interdisciplinary five-day workshop on causal inference in genetics. This workshop will be held from July 25 to 29, 2016.

Many of the recent breakthroughs in high-dimensional statistics have been driven by problems in genetics, especially by the difficulties associated with inference where the number of covariates (such as SNPs) massively exceeds the number of individual samples. Significant progress towards attacking such problems has been achieved in recent years through methods based on regularization, sparsity, and control of false discovery rates.
