Workshop in Honour of David F. Andrews - May 23 and 24, 2002
Short Course in Microarray Data Analysis - May 25, 2002


Overview
On December 31st, 2001 David Andrews retired from the University of Toronto. This wonderful individual will be honoured in a special way on May 23rd, 24th and 25th of 2002, immediately before the annual meeting of the Statistical Society of Canada. On May 23rd and 24th, 2002 a two day workshop is planned to be held at the Fields Institute followed by a short course in Microarray Data Analysis on May 25th. David has a keen interest in statistical genetics and has been extremely supportive of the genetics group at The University of Toronto. The shortcourse being held in concert with the workshop is designed to introduce statisticians and other researchers to the design and analysis of high-dimensional gene expression studies.
