Rapid progress in human genome research heralded a new era of genomics and medicine. The potential of genetics and genomics to provide new paradigms for prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of disease is immense. This course is intended to offer a comprehensive understanding of human genomics including technologies, applications, and data interpretation. Topics covered in this course will include up-to-date approaches in analysis of human genomes, assessment of disease risk, pharmacogenomics, and next generation sequencing technologies. The course is designed for PhD students interested in human genetics research and MD students preparing for personalized medicine in the clinic, and any students interested in learning how to interpret and understand his or her genome. At the end of the course, the students should have the advanced knowledge of genomics, the technology for genome analysis, and the ability to design and execute the project in their biomedical research and medical practice. Prerequisite: Inter 122/123 or permission from the instructor.
