Twin Research and Human Genetics
August 5 @ 8:00 am - August 19 @ 5:00 pm
Twins have always been a subject of great scientific interest. Summer of 2017, continue this study of twin genetics in the VU Amsterdam Summer School course, Nature and Nurture: Twin Research and Human Genetics. This is an interdisciplinary course where you will explore the interaction between genes and environment and what determines behavior, lifestyle, and health.
The course is taught by scientists who work closely with the world-renowned Netherlands Twin Register at VU Amsterdam. They will train you in studying twin data, as well as information from genomics and epigenetics. The course will also cover both the theoretical and philosophical background that comes with genetic research. This will help increase your understanding of complex human genetics and accompanying traits.
