VU summer course: Nature and Nurture – Twin Research and Human Genetics
June 30 - July 14
Join the VU summer course exploring how twin research can resolve the debate between nature and nurture.
Do twins hold the key to understanding complex human traits and diseases? Can they resolve the age-old debate between nature and nurture? What is determined by our DNA, what comes from our environment? Thanks to recent technological advances, we are closer than ever to explaining where our individual differences come from. Our ability to map human DNA at high resolution in large populations is now enabling us to link genetic variation to traits and disease at the molecular level.
This summer course is interesting for students and professionals interested in the rapidly evolving field of human genetics, especially those aspiring to join its international research community.
Have a look at the website for more information about the course.
In addition, VU Amsterdam will start a Research Master programme called Genes in Behavior and Health in September this year.
