Analysis Working Group

Chair / Co-Chairs: Rainer Malik, Matthew Traylor, Chris Anderson

The analysis working group within the ISGC is a freely formed group of multiple individuals interested in the more analytical aspects of stroke genetics. In contrast to the more phenotypically oriented working groups, the analysis group deals with the handling of the data, QC, basic analysis (GWAS, sequencing data) and advanced analysis (functional follow-up, MR, PheWAS, multi-omics). As there is no regular call within the group, alternative communication forms (RocketChat) are used to share interesting methods or manuscripts and to freely communicate about analytical problems. For distinct projects within the ISGC, the analysis group will help and formulate or review analysis plans.
