Are you interested in incorporating epigenetic data in your analyses? In this course, we will introduce epigenetic terms relevant to social science, the data available in Understanding Society, procedures to access these data and provide a worked example of the use of epigenetic data in a social science framework.
This half day workshop will consist of an introductory presentation on epigenetics, focussing on DNA methylation, followed by an overview of the data that are available in Understanding Society. We will then illustrate and conduct a simple analysis in R using data from Understanding Society in a computer practical session.
