NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – Genomics software firm Golden Helix will offer a scholarship to a participant in an upcoming Harvard School of Public Health course focused on family-based experimental designs for genetic association studies, the company said Thursday.
The Bozeman, Mont.-based company said the scholarship will cover travel expenses and course registration fees for a participant who would otherwise not be able to participate due to financial limitations. The company also will give the scholarship and two runner-up candidates one-year subscriptions to the Golden Helix SNP and Variation Suite or to the Golden Helix PBAT software.
The family-based association test short course, to be held June 2-3, focuses on designing experiments that use information about infected individuals and close relatives such as parents and siblings. Further information is available here.
