  • 0:27 - 0:30
    Hey there, I'm Matt. One of the instructors from the
  • 0:30 - 0:33
    course Tales from the Genome. I'm really excited that you
  • 0:33 - 0:35
    logged on to learn with us. What do you say
  • 0:35 - 0:39
    we get this genetics party started? You mind loading the course?
  • 0:39 - 0:45
    [SOUND].
  • 0:45 - 0:47
    Welcome to Tales from the Genome. And
  • 0:47 - 0:51
    adventure in DNA, identity, and health. I'm Matt.
  • 0:51 - 0:52
    >> And I'm Lauren.
  • 0:52 - 0:54
    >> And together, we'll be your genome guides. Now, I have my PhD
  • 0:54 - 0:58
    in cell and molecular biology and I'll be your main instructor for this course.
  • 0:58 - 1:02
    >> And I have my Masters degree in experimental psychology. Matt approached
  • 1:02 - 1:04
    me to help him teach this class because I know a little bit
  • 1:04 - 1:06
    about genetics through psychology, but I
  • 1:06 - 1:08
    always want to learn more, and I thought
  • 1:08 - 1:11
    this was a great opportunity for me to learn about my own genome.
  • 1:11 - 1:12
    And help you learn about yours.
  • 1:12 - 1:15
    >> This course should be accessible to anyone of almost
  • 1:15 - 1:18
    any age or any knowledge base. If you're still in high
  • 1:18 - 1:21
    school, or even if you already have a graduate degree. If
  • 1:21 - 1:24
    you find yourself taken a lesson, and the information in it
  • 1:24 - 1:26
    is a little too basic for you, feel free to
  • 1:26 - 1:28
    jump ahead or skip around. You can use the syllabus to
  • 1:28 - 1:31
    find out which portions are most relevant to you as a
  • 1:31 - 1:35
    good starting point. Together we'll discover the secrets of your genome.
  • 1:35 - 1:36
    >> And,
  • 1:36 - 1:39
    reveal a new perspective of what it means to be human.
