Description

This course builds on the skills learned in the Intermediate DNA course. We will focus on the incorporation of DNA evidence into genealogical conclusions, including correlating different types of evidence and resolving conflicts. Among other skills, we will design DNA testing plans, examine the latest tools used to generate hypotheses and DNA evidence, and combine DNA evidence with documentary evidence.
