3 hours of Statistics electives. Recommended elective courses are:

  • ST 520: Clinical Trials and Epidemiology
  • ST 540: Applied Bayesian Analysis
  • ST 711: Design of Experiments (or 500 level version)
  • ST 744: Categorical Data Analysis (or 500 level version)

Additional Notes on Course Work

Most statistical genetics elective courses rely on the material covered in GN 311 (Principles of Genetics) or a comparable course from another university as a prerequisite. Note that GN 311 will not count for graduate credit.
