I am an early career scientist from Australia working in the field of quantitative genetics. A significant part of my field deals with things such as; detection and estimation of gene effects, differentiation between genetic and environmental sources of variance, predicting inter generational gene movement etc.. Since I have no formal stat or math background and because much of this work revolves around combinatorics and probability, I am hoping to be able to pick everyone's brains here for tips and suggestions. If anyone else here happens to work in the world of genetics send me a line.
