BIOL 4423 Human Genetics (Fall: 3 )

Course Description

Recent advances in human genetics have provided scientists with some of the data they need to understand how genetic differences manifest themselves in human development and disease. This course will discuss the techniques scientists use to sequence and analyze DNA, how the genetic composition of individuals differs, and how those differences lead to our diversity, and sometimes, to disease. The ethical implications of genetic advances such as prenatal genetic testing, preimplantation genetic diagnosis, and consumer genomics will also be discussed.
