Hardy-Weinberg Equilibrium

During this week, Yurii Aulchenko will teach you the basics of population and quantitative genetics. Population genetics is a branch of genetics that deals with genetic variation among individuals in a population. "Nothing in Biology Makes Sense Except in the Light of Evolution" is a quotation from a 1973 essay by the evolutionary biologist Theodosius Dobzhansky. The fundamental importance of population genetics lies in the insights it provides into the mechanisms of evolution, thus allowing geneticists to better understand the drivers behind the organization and functioning of human genomes. You will learn about such phenomena as population structure, selection and genetic drift. You will also learn about quantitative genetics, which studies how the genes and environment control variations in complex phenotypes.
