I am excited and delighted to be invited to present at the Vancouver SAS User Group‘s next meeting. I will provide an introduction to statistical genetics; specifically, I will
- define basic terminology in genetics
- explain the Hardy-Weinberg equilibrium in detail
- illustrate how Pearson’s chi-squared goodness-of-fit test can be used in PROC FREQ in SAS to check the Hardy-Weinberg equilibrium
- illustrate how the Newton-Raphson algorithm can be used for maximum likelihood estimation in PROC IML in SAS
