Family and even population history can be encoded and decoded in our very own DNA.  In this class, we'll do a brief exploration of Jewish genetic history.  We'll start with basic principles of genetic inheritance.  Then we'll use these to talk about the genetic history of the Jewish populations of Europe, the Middle East and even India.  Finally we'll connect this unique history to our genetic future and talk about disease risk.
