Online genetics course coming very soon

At the 2017 WAHO Conference in February, Guest Speaker Dr. Samantha A. Brooks, PhD,  from the Brooks Equine Genetics Lab at the University of Florida Genetics Institute, announced that they would be offering a 6-week online course in equine genetics.  This is with the aim of improving the understanding of genetic principles and technologies among horse breeders and owners, tailored to be the material that is most relevant and easily understood in a fairly short period of time.  It’s all done online so if you are interested, can spare a few hours each week to watch a number of videos, do a few brief activities, and have some online conversations with your fellow participants, you can earn a certificate that says you have attended and fulfilled all the requirements of this course.  More information on the attached.

The course is due to start on April 3rd and runs until May 15th.  The details can be found here:   http://www.ufequinegenetics.org/online-courses.html

There is a special discount for WAHO Members of US$ 25 on the course fee if you use this specific link when registering:   http://reg.distance.ufl.edu/reg/Activity/Details/87b4ff6f5e6e4ee794c473c3fd66106b
