Event Details

While geneticists have been revealing a wealth of data on the origins of humans, they have ignored popular misconceptions regarding the significance of this information for everyday life.

Dr. William Klitz is a Visiting Scholar in the School of Public Health with a Ph.D. in Population Biology from the University of Kansas will bring this powerful and sometimes unnerving new information to heel by carefully assessing the current state of affairs. Revelatory topics include:

  • how much individuals differ and how much groups differ genetically,
  • human natural selection in action, a genetic history of the Jewish diaspora,
  • how much does genetics determine human health and behavior,
  • and finally we answer “Can genetics be the last word?
