The Ups, Downs, Ins & Outs of Computational Genomics in Anthropology

Organizer: Xinjun Zhang (postdoc, anthropological geneticist at UCLA)

Description: Over the last decade, computational genomics has brought a whirlwind of new insights to human evolution. We have so far witnessed a rapid emergence of genomics data and quantitative methods. This month, AAPA brings you a panel of four experts to talk about their fascinating research in human demographic history, with a particular focus on the start-of-the-art analytical methods used in anthropological genomics nowadays, including their assumptions, strengths, and weaknesses.
