Population Genetic Inference

 

Members of the Department of Statistics will be teaching a graduate-level course of eight lectures introducing the theory and techniques of population genetic inference with particular emphasis on modern developments in the field of human genetics.  Lectures of 90 minutes will be held at 2pm on Tuesdays in Lecture Theatre C in the Department of Zoology on South Parks Road.  No registration is required.

 

Slides will become available from this site as the course progresses.  All are available as pdf files, which can be read with Adobe Acrobat Reader.  If you do not have Acrobat Reader, it can be downloaded from here.  Lecture notes and slides from previous years can be found on the 2001 and 2002 sites.
