Time: 9:00 AM To 10:30 AM

Location: Mazer 526

Event Description:
This course will consist of lectures covering a broad range of topics in human genetics. It will begin with a discussion of the human genome and the clinical and basic science applications that emerged from the human genome initiative. This will be followed by a review of the regulation of gene expression, focusing on basic molecular biology, evolutionary considerations and clinical implications. Then, a series of lectures will be given covering chromosomal disorders, Mendelian disorders, complex traits genetics, and the strategies used to identify disease‐causing genes. This will be followed by lectures on cancer genetics and epigenetics. Finally, clinical applications of genomic research with respect to pharmacogenomics and personalized medicine will be discussed. By the end of the course, students will be able to intelligently read and interpret molecular and genetic findings related to their areas of interest.
