Both inherent and somatic alterations in the genome cause various kinds of diseases including congenital disorders and cancer. Small differences in genome, such as polymorphisms or epigenetic changes, also affect disease. This course will examine the types of genetic alterations that contribute to genetic disease, how to identify the genetic components and alterations, genotype-phenotype correlations, and functional analyses of responsible genes using recently published articles. By the end of the course, students should understand that various genetic alterations are responsible for the development of genetic disease.
