Introduction to Molecular Genetic Methods in Eating Disorders Research

This webinar will provide an overview of Molecular Genetic Methods in Eating Disorder research. Dr. Zeynep Yilmaz will discuss steps to implement methods such as genome-wide association studies, polygenic risk scores, and genetic correlation. In addition, she will explore methodological considerations in this research such as imputation, population stratification, and power. She will identify ways in which these methods can further eating disorder research and discuss current limitations in our understanding of genetic risk for eating disorders.
