Starting on Monday 22nd May, the Genomics Education Programme’s online course explores the ins and outs of whole genome sequencing and features interviews with leading scientists and medics working at the forefront of this new technology.
Participants in the course will learn more about the processes of sequencing the genome and interpreting results for patients through real life case studies in cancer, rare disease and infectious disease – including stories of participants taking part in the 100,000 Genomes Project.
The course runs across three weeks and is broadly separated into:
- The Fundamentals of Genomics
- Sequencing the Genome
- Application in Healthcare
Enrolment is free and the course is open to anyone with an interest in genomic medicine who would like to learn more about how the technology works and its potential to benefit patients.
