    The 14th Graybill Conference on Statistical Genetics and Genomics

    Dates: June 5-7, 2017

    Location: Colorado State University, Fort Collins, CO

    Statistical genomics and genetics have been growing remarkably fast and covering more and more topics in both fields, and nowadays they are essential parts of modern biological and medical researches and meanwhile important research topics within statistics, so that exposure and understanding of the motivating problems, newly-developed models and methods, and working protocols are extremely useful to both statistician, biology and medical researchers, and graduate students. The goal of the conference is to provide an opportunity for quantitative scientists including statisticians, bioinformatists, and computer scientists as well as practitioners including biologists, biomedical researchers, and graduate students to generate and share ideas for new creative research in both statistics and genomics or genetics; to exchange knowledge on frontier statistical methodologies on problems rising from genomics and genetics; and to stimulate professional networking opportunities.

    The keynote speakers are

    • Xihong Lin, Henry Pickering Walcott Professor of Biostatistics and the Chair of Department of Biostatistics in Harvard University.
    • Kathryn Roeder, Professor of Statistics and Computational Biology, and Vice Provost for Faculty in Carnegie Mellon University.
    • John Storey, Director of the Center for Statistics and Machine Learning, William R. Harman '63 and Mary-Love Harman Professor in Genomics, and Professor in the Lewis-Sigler Institute for Integrative Genomics in Princeton University.

    There will be invited talks by distinguished researchers, and a poster session by young researchers and graduate students. For more information, please visit the website:

    Registration is open now. Please register and submit the abstract on the website. In order to encourage graduate students and young researchers to conduct a cutting-edge research, we are currently organizing a poster session. The workshop will be providing partial travel awards to selected conference participants. Priority will be given to senior graduate students, post-graduate, recent Ph.D.’s, junior faculty, and under-represented groups. If you have any questions, please contact
