These lectures were prepared and presented by William FisherRuth OkedijiWilliam Lee, and Eric Lander. Each is available in two formats. The Vimeo version is likely to be most convenient for a user who wishes to stream the lecture or whose computer has limited storage capacity. By contrast, a user who has limited bandwidth or who wishes to retain a permanent copy of a lecture may wish instead to download the mp4 version (typically by “right clicking” on the relevant link) and then play it from his or her computer.
