Whole Genome Sequencing: Decoding the Language of Life and Health

This postgraduate-level course, in combination with Genomic Technologies in Clinical Diagnostics: Molecular Techniques, will help you understand these new and established genetic technologies, and their application to clinical practice.
This course focuses on genomic sequencing. By the end, you will be able to:
• demonstrate an understanding of the molecular principles behind next generation sequencing (NGS) technologies;
• identify appropriate applications of these technologies to clinical scenarios within both diagnostic and research settings;
• and evaluate alternative applications of next generation sequencing technologies outside of DNA sequencing, such as RNA seq and ChIP-seq.
