Surveying Galton’s Legacy
15 November 2017
Royal Society, London

This meeting will explore how the work of eminent but controversial Sir Francis Galton, founder of biometrics and quantitative genetics, coiner of the term “eugenics”, has developed, for example into today’s forensic DNA fingerprinting and the genetics of intellectual ability.  The predominantly scientific program also includes historical and ethical perspectives. The meeting is free but registration is essential.
