Skip to 0 minutes and 21 seconds Hello genomics in medicine has developed at an amazing speed. Genomic Technologies can now analyze all of our genes at once and even the rest of our DNA two, this is making it increasingly possible not only to diagnose and understand medical conditions, but also in some cases to treat them, for example particular rare diseases and specific cancers. In this course we will be explaining some of the key genomic concepts and terminology will also be discussing what is now possible. In medical genomics, plus some key aspects of how the human genome works how it can be analyzed. The types of variants that it may contain and how it can guide treatment of human conditions.
Skip to 1 minute and 6 seconds Important Lee will give learners hands on experience in using amazing online genomic databases. These include ensemble based near Cambridge in the UK and another called NCBI close to Washington DC. Learners in this course will use these databases to find real data. Themselves I find databases like these to be particularly useful in my own clinical work in my research and in my teaching for example, on the award winning medical genetics and genomics Masters at the University of Glasgow with the increasing power and availability of methods for analyzing multiple genes an genomic regions at the same time, and with the rapid growth in the use of these methods in labs around the world.
