This course is based on the publication “Guide to Genetic Testing and Genetic Genealogy”by Blaine Bettinger, and will include investigation of genetic genealogy basics and common misconceptions. This course is heavily weighted towards genealogy with little emphasis placed on scientific aspects of DNA or genetic engineering.
A one term course with a duration of 8 weeks and divided into two parts. The first 6 weeks will be based on tutorials, followed by 2 weeks of workshops where members will have the opportunity to practice what they have learnt. Members are asked to bring their laptops/iPads or any other electronic device to class, particularly for the workshops as these segments will be hands-on.
