  Course Description
The aim of this class is to help students gain a sufficient understanding of human genetics so that they can appreciate the genetic basis of human disease, and the importance of genetic considerations in the prevention and treatment of diseases. This course will use a literature-based approach to cover the fundamentals, from the chromosomal basis for hereditary to the molecular and biochemical basis of genetic diseases as well as the current molecular diagnostic and treatment methods available for genetic diseases. A combination of classic and current papers, together with case studies will be used. The course is aimed at students in biology and related fields with a keen interest in human disease. This class is dual listed with BIO 433.
