Course description
Every day one lecture followed by hands-on computer practical; each day finishes with a keynote lecture.
During the course there is an assignment with a final presentation (which will be assessed) and an exam.

This course provides an overview of multiple genetic tools used by neuroscientists, including: brain atlases, analysis of pathways and gene sets, GWAS/WebQTL/Phenotype analysis; (single cell) RNAseq, imaging genetics and connectomics.
Central theme: neurological and psychiatric diseases
