This week's PopGenLunch will feature the Genome Sciences Department's new
population genomics hire, Kelley Harris, who is here from Stanford University
where she is finishing her postdoc and preparing to move here in January.

Her title is: "Functional implications of Neanderthal introgression"

As usual, we meet in S110 Foege from 12:30-1:30pm.

We now have a reasonably full schedule for the quarter. (If you feel frustrated
that you didn't sign up in time, we have one slot left, and there's always next
quarter). By the way, I will unfortunately be out of town for the November 3
