Genetics and Genomics in Medicine - MEDI219

During this unit you will explore the science and technologies underlying genetics/genomics and other "omics", and their application in personalised medicine. You will review the molecular bases for inheritance, and the DNA/RNA technologies that are revolutionising medical genetics and genomics. You will apply principles of classical genetics and examine newer approaches to explore the inheritance of defined traits, simple (monogenic) diseases, common diseases, and the behaviour of genes in populations. The emerging discipline of genomic medicine and the use of personal "omic" information for clinical care will also be examined. This unit will utilise cancer as a leading example of the use of genomics and other "omics" data for the personalised diagnosis, prognosis, treatment and response to therapy of patients.
