Population Genetics: When Darwin Met Mendel - Crash Course Biology
out of 5 stars
03 Oct 2015 | | Contributor(s):: CrashCourse
This Youtube video talks about population genetics, which helps to explain the evolution of populations over time by combing the principles of Mendel and Darwin, and by means of the Hardy-Weinberg equation, all in an upbeat, modern and somewhat zany manner.

Human Genetic Variation: A Flipped Exercise in Cultural Competency
15 Jan 2015 | | Contributor(s):: Shoumita Dasgupta, Katherine Larabee Tuttle
"This interactive case discussion was created to emphasize the clinical relevance of population genetics, but is also a suitable resource for teaching the basic principles of population genetics while relating them to human genetic variation. Our understanding of human genetic variation has...
