The 16th Summer Institute in Statistical Genetics will be held June 13-July 1, 2011, in Seattle, at the University of Washington.

The course offerings include a 2.5 day module in "Advanced R Programming", June 27-29 with Thomas Lumley and Ken Rice as instructors.
This module covers use of R for advanced graphics, object-oriented programming, use of SQL databases and other formats used with large data files, some of the Bioconductor data infrastructure, production of R packages, and calling C code from R. The module is aimed
at people who have either substantial R experience or programming experience in other languages. There is also a (very) introductory module on R for genetics, June 15-17, by the same instructors.

Other modules cover statistics, classical and modern statistical genetics, gene expression, and proteomics.
