I mentioned in passing a few weeks ago that Sohini Ramchandaran will be presenting a seminar in EEB this fall. As a matter of fact, she’ll be presenting her seminar this Thursday at 3:30pm via Zoom. The timing of her seminar is perfect. (You might almost think I planned it this way.) She’ll be discussing how to make inferences about the genetic basis of complex traits, and you’ll have a chance to see some very modern approaches to quantitative genetics. It provides a preview of where we’ll be heading from Thursday morning through the end of the semester.
By the way, Sohini and I are academic siblings, although she’s much younger (and more accomplished) than I am. Our major advisor was Marcus Feldman.
