LMP1108H: Genome analysis in medicine
Who can attend
There are no prerequisites for this course.
The advent of next-generation sequencing technologies coupled with decreasing cost has accelerated the pace of gene discovery and revolutionized DNA based diagnostics.
You will become familiar with current methods in the analysis and medical interpretation of genomic sequence data.
By the end of this course you will understand how to:
- analyze a genome
- interpret a genome
You will follow the steps of genomic analysis and complete assignments each week that use the resources we discuss in lectures.
You will complete a term project to analyze a raw genome sequence and report on the relevant findings.
