Evolutionary Genetics of Humans and Other Primates: A Journal Club


Welcome to eghop, a journal club on the evolutionary genetics of humans and other primates. We meet weekly by Zoom. During the Spring semester of 2021, we'll meet Tuesdays at 3PM Mountain time, which is UTC-7 until March 14, then UTC-6.

Each week, we discuss a recent publication or preprint on the evolutionary genetics of humans or other primates. Everyone is welcome, from anywhere in the world. You need not be affiliated with our University, and there is no fee. Undergraduates are welcome. The only prerequisite is an interest in the subject. The journal club is administered by Alan Rogers and Tim Webster, of the University of Utah.

Participants are expected to treat each other with respect. Anyone who fails to do so will be blocked.

If you'd like to participate, send email to Alan Rogers (rogers@anthro.utah.edu). Unless I know you already, tell me about yourself. I'll send you the Zoom meeting id and password.

Suggested readings

We prefer articles that present new findings--either empirical or theoretical. Review papers and methodological papers are less likely to provoke interesting discussions. We'll conduct surveys from time to time to vote on the suggested readings.
