Level: Fundamentals

Version: 8.7.0 or higher

Product: SVS

The following tutorial is designed to systematically introduce you to a number of techniques for genome-wide association studies. The dataset included in the tutorial is from a Bovine HapMap dataset genotyped using an Illumina Array. For the association study we will be using the Mixed Linear Model tool that is available in SVS.

This tutorial is not meant to replicate all the workflows you might use in a complete analysis, but instead touch on a sampling of the more typical scenarios you may come across in your own studies.

All phenotype data is simulated.
