Event Details

Introducing our 13th Nerd Night on Friday, December 14th:

Ancestry

Help us Celebrate our One Year Anniversary!

Have you spit in a tube, plucked a hair follicle, or taken a cheek swab yet?  Are you considering an over-the-counter genetic testing kit as a 'the perfect' holiday gift this year?  Most of us want to know more about where our ancestors came from and what genetic traits we may have inherited from them.  If you'd like to learn more about the science, accuracy, and broader societal implications of genetic testing kits, then don't miss our next Nerd Night!

Speakers

  1. Stefan Long - Managing Partner at Alliance DNA Laboratories in Las Cruces, will discuss the science and accuracy of over-the-counter human genetic testing kits
  2. Dr. Ophra Leyser - Whalen, Assistant Professor at UTEP focusing on medical sociology, will discuss the broader sociological implications of human DNA tests and the data it generates
