Course objectives
The aim of this course is to provide students a molecular-genetic insight into selected areas of human genetics. At the end of this course, students should be able to describe the structure of the human genome and apply the principles of methods used in its analysis. They should also understand the Human Genome Project (HGP) and interpret the use of information gained under HGP framework. They should also compose molecular aspects of human evolution and understand molecular principles of genetic diseases in human (monogenic and polygenic), as well as formulate the priciples of human pharmacogenetics, gene therapy and forenzic genetics.
