You are invited to a guest lecture delivered by Professor Mark Jobling on Thursday 26 November at 5.15pm in Sunley Conference Centre. Professor Mark Jobling, Professor of Genetics in the University of Leicester’s Department of Genetics is passionate about communicating science to the public and has recently spoken out against the business of genetic ancestry. Mark has spent his career working in the area of human evolutionary biology where he focuses on the genetics of the sex chromosomes. This has led him to explore diverse topics such as the genetic legacy of Genghis Khan, whether we can confidently predict surnames from Y-DNA forensic profiles (focusing on Viking migrations), the impact of Diasporas on the making of Britain and the possible role of Y chromosome gene variants that increase risk for coronary artery disease.
