Population Genetics Conference Call

Monday, September 19, 2011


Population Genetics Conference Call for the Health and Retirement Study (HRS) was held as a follow-up to an expert meeting was held on September 23-24th of 2010 to discuss using GWAS to explore fundamental questions about aging in the HRS. There were no experts in population genetics able to attend the original meeting, so this call was convened to explore the potential work that can be done in this area.
