Course overview; Genetic transmission in populations

We'll start with an overview of the course, and then we'll dive right into zero force laws in population genetics. We'll also derive a basic principle of population genetics that you are probably already familiar with - the Hardy-Weinberg principle. What you won't be familiar with is how many assumptions are associated with deriving it. There are so many that we'll have to finish the derivation on Thursday. Look at the detail page for Thursday to get the notes on deriving Hardy-Weinberg.
