MOLECULAR GENETICS AND GENOMICS
Credit points: 15
Molecular Genetics and Genomics introduces students to advanced concepts in modern molecular genetics and genomics. The topics covered in this subject include the genetic regulation of embryonic development and genetic disease; stem cells and gene therapies; cancer and personalised medicine; use of model organisms for studying Human genetic diseases, including mouse and fruit fly models; immuno-genetics; genomics, bioinformatics and gene therapy. A large part of this blended subject involves problem-based learning, where students work through online genetics lessons, case studies and scientific literature analyses, which provide the conceptual basis for face to face workshop classes.
