Notes on population genomics and on an introduction to quantitative genetics uploaded

The final set of notes on molecular population genetics has been uploaded. You’ll find a link on the lecture detail page for Tuesday, Population genomics. You’ll also find a link to the first set of notes on quantitative genetics on the lecture detail page for Thursday. As noted there, understanding some key ideas in quantitative genetics involves a lot of math. I’ll do my best to continually remind you where we’re going and why what we’re doing matters, but please remember to ask me “WGAD? – Who gives a damn?” whenever you’re feeling lost. If you’re too confused even to ask a question to clarify, just ask “WGAD?” and I’ll do my best to back up and explain things another way. If I can demonstrate why you should GAD, the light bulb that shows how things connect might suddenly go off.
