About Genomics Lite: Human Genetic Variation Series

Genomics Lite is a programme of live webinars to inspire and engage upper secondary school students, teachers and other educational groups. Each series will explore a different field in biology, and how genomics research contributes to understanding in the field.

In this Human Genetic Variation series, we’ll be exploring how genetic variation arises, what it means for populations, and how it affects our health and contributes to medical knowledge. Each session will explore a different aspect of Human Genetic Variation and provide the opportunity to hear about cutting edge research and ask questions to scientists working in the field.
