Course objectives
The course provides an overview of the current knowledge of clinical genetics and its interdisciplinary character. Recent and modern concepts of genetic disorders, prevention of genetic diseases and congenital defects and relevant modern diagnostic methods are presented to students. As an extension of these topics, ethical, juridical and psychosocial issues are discussed. The subject matter presented in this course will help to better understand other medical subjects including internal medicine, neurology, surgery etc.
Learning outcomes
Student will be able to:
- to examine the patient with suspected genetic disease
- build a lineage
- to indicate the tests that will lead to the diagnosis of genetic diseases
- Have a basic overview of cytogenetic and molecular biological methods
- have a basic overview of the types of inheritance and the most important inherited diseases
  • Principles of clinical genetics - standard karyotype and its abnormalities - indication criteria for prenatal and postnatal karyotype examination - prenatal cytogenetic methods - prenatal screening examinations – chromosomal aberrations – chromosome instability – principles of DNA diagnostics - prenatal diagnostics using methods of molecular genetics – gene therapy and mapping of the human genome – principles of oncocytogenetics – genetic counseling - case reports.
