pgEd is pleased to be part of the American Society of Human Genetics’s annual conference taking place October 18-22 in San Diego, California. The day before the conference formally begins, ASHG hosts a day long institute for San Diego area students and teachers on the new and fascinating topics in genetics and genetics education. pgEd is thrilled to be offering a workshop at this event. We will be talking about the intersection of sports and genetics as a tool to teach genetic concepts like variation, complexity, and gene-environment interaction. More details soon.
