Course Description: 

This is a team taught mammal genetics course that assumes a basic knowledge of molecular biology, molecular genetics and classical genetics. It covers a wide range of topics from clinical cytogenetics, Mendelian genetics with examples of specific diseases, population genetics and multifactorial inheritance, to physical mapping, genome informatics, mutation detection and more diseases that exemplify certain genetic principles. Finally, functional genomics, including DNA microarray analyses and applications and SNPs (single nucleotide polymorphisms) and applications are introduced.
