Primer on Medical and Population Genetics

The Primer on Medical and Population Genetics is a series of informal weekly discussions of basic genetics topics that relate to human populations and disease. Experts from across the Broad Institute community give in-depth introductions to the basic principles of complex trait genetics, including human genetic variation, genotyping, DNA sequencing methods, statistics, data analysis, and more.

Videos of these sessions are made freely available for viewing here and are geared toward a wide audience that includes research technicians, graduate students, postdoctoral fellows, and established investigators just entering the field. Videos are also available for streaming at the Broad's YouTube channel and are downloadable as podcasts at iTunesU.

If you'd like more information about the primers or have suggestions for future topics, contact seminar series organizer Chris Newton-Cheh.
