27th Summer Institute in Statistical Genetics (SISG)


For more than two decades, the Summer Institute in Statistical Genetics (SISG) has introduced geneticists to modern methods of statistical analysis and statisticians to the challenges posed by modern genetic data. Bruce Weir serves as the Director of SISG. The goal of SISG is to strengthen the statistical and genetic proficiency and career preparation of scholars from all backgrounds, especially those from groups historically underrepresented in STEM such as racial and ethnic minority groups, low income, first generation college students, veterans, individuals with disabilities, and 2SLGBTQ groups.
