Genetics and Genomics

This course takes you through a step-by-step introduction to genetics, starting with the fundamentals and on to more advanced topics including molecular biology, gene mapping, and screening, and reverse and forward genetic research. You’ll learn about what we know about genes and how we use genetics research to learn more about basic biology. This course will lay the groundwork for you to be successful.

Learn how scientists to sequence, assemble, and analyze genomes to determine their function and structure. Learn how to use large-scale population studies to determine the heritability of traits and diseases, as well as how gene discovery might aid in the identification of treatment targets. Examine how personal genomics could help you manage your health.

Gene therapy has the potential to be a game-changer in the fight against cancer, hereditary illnesses, and a variety of other diseases. Decades of progress have resulted in an increasing number of successful clinical trials for the development of safe and effective therapies.
