Spelman Leads Pioneering Genetics and Genealogy Program with Students Tracing Ancestry

So exciting!!

I saw this Facebook post and wanted to share:

"LEADING the WAY: Spelman leads pioneering genetics and genealogy program that allows students to trace their ancestry. The College will be part of a companion program to the new "Finding Your Roots" curriculum based on Harvard University professor Henry Louis Gates, Jr.’s acclaimed PBS documentary series. The college-level component, "Personalized Genetics and Genealogy Exercises to Enhance Introductory Biology Courses," funded with a $304,000 grant from the National Science Foundation, will launch in fall 2016. It will be led by Spelman biologist Aditi Pai, Ph.D. More on this exciting work here."
