About the course
The implementation of next-generation sequencing technologies has enabled genomics to become a mainstream subject in medicine. The UK has now adopted Whole Genome Sequencing (WGS) in clinical practice, and the use of genomic sequencing technologies in healthcare has become widespread across many countries. Healthcare professionals across the world need the skills to understand genomics and what it means for their patients.
This online course will provide participants with the basic principles of genomic medicine. The content will include the distinction between genetics and genomics and a focus on understanding the different modes of inheritance. With a focus on practical case studies and a workshop-style of delivery, the course will offer the opportunity to engage with academics and fellow participants and build collaborative networks.
