The next workshop will be held in Boulder, Colorado, March 3—7, 2008, with John Hewitt as local host. This course is intended to be introductory. Mike Neale serves as the Academic Director for the workshop and is joined by approximately a dozen outstanding faculty from universities around the world.

The course will include: Causes of variation; univariate twin analysis; between group heterogeneity; path analysis; analysis of raw data; multivariate genetic analysis; multiple raters; sibling effects; categorical data; power analysis; models of comorbidity; extended pedigrees; developmental models; and an introduction to quantitative trait loci and association. Hands-on analysis will be emphasized employing networked notebook computers.
