GINGER Seminar with Addis Ababa University – April 2019
On April 18, 2019, GINGER held a one-day seminar collaboration with the Department of Psychiatry at Addis Ababa University in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. The workshop was split into two programs: (1) Genetics Research and (2) General Research. The first half introduced DNA Sequencing Technologies led by Dr. Elizabeth Atkinson (Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard), Genome Wide Association Studies (GWAS) led by Dr. Alicia Martin (Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard), and Polygenic Risk Scores also led by Dr. Alicia Martin. The second half focused on General Research techniques. This was divided into two main topics, both led by GINGER Principal Investigator Dr. Lori Chibnik. The first focused on data management, including how to build a better data set. The second was manuscript writing, which focused on demystifying the publication process.
