  • TwinLife first data workshop  at DIW Berlin on June 21st, 2016

    On June, 21st the first TwinLife data workshop took place at the DIW Berlin. Lectures were accompanied by tutorials and hands-on sessions.The software used in the workshop was Stata and SPSS. 

    Within the first half of the workshop we provided an overview about the scope and the study design of TwinLife. Afterwards, data of the first wave were presented as well as the access to the data for the scientific community. Moreover, workshop comprised a hands-on introduction into the basic concepts of genetically sensitive research and behavior genetics by means of selected examples of how behavior genetic research can be used in an interdisciplinary context. Applying practical exercises, specific models were introduced, implemented and discussed employing the data of the first wave of TwinLife to give participants the opportunity to get in touch with the data set.
