The objective of this module is to introduce the fundamental concepts and methods of population and statistical genetics as they apply to human populations. Topics include the major forces impacting population genetic variation, quantitative genetics, linkage analysis, tests of association, complex or multi-factorial traits and diseases, and the role of the evironment. Discussion of many of these topics will be based on particular papers from the literature.
