Welcome to our virtual classroom where we offer 100 classes each year ranging from history and music to art and science. Our classes are for personal enrichment and are about 1-1/2 hours long.
Classes are conducted via Zoom by specialists in a variety of fields, many of whom are professors or retired professors.
Are we as individuals a result of our ancestors and environment? If we go back 10 generations, says anthropologist Henry George, we could have as many as 1,024 ancestors each of whom may have contributed something into our genetic code.One human has 24,000 genes allocated over 23 chromosomes.These numbers can result in the wide variation of human traits that are exhibited by individual humans today.The effects of nature and nurture are determinants; but knowing our heredity can provide new ways to understanding our individual selves, our families, ethnicities, nationhood, and humanity.This lecture is about genetic markers and genealogies.March 2 (Tue) 10 a.m.
