Genstat Summer School 2019

– Practical statistics in Genstat for Biological Scientists –


This Summer School brings together biologists, statisticians, geneticists and students actively engaged in applying modern tools in Genstat to improve statistical data analysis. We have successfully organized several international seminars on statistical data analysis for our users and public participants from various industries including business, public authorities, research centres and universities across the world. This Summer School will give participants an opportunity to gain more knowledge and to share their insight and experiences amongst other participants. The invited professor is a well-known statistical consultant and researcher who leads the development of Genstat, originally at Rothamsted and now at VSNi. Each participant will receive a Genstat licence for 3 months to continue using after the Summer School.

This Summer School provides scholarships for outstanding students. Each successful student receives a 5200 CNY (740 USD) discount towards the training fee. VSN China is responsible for the scholarship organization and application. Please download an application form and send it to before 28th June, 2019.
