The application of genetics to the understanding and treatment of human disease; basic methods for design, analysis, interpretation and follow-up of rare variant, candidate gene, and genome-wide association studies. Four credits in general biology courses may be substituted for the prerequisite.
As a result of completing this course, students will be able to: 1. Describe linkage disequilibrium in the human genome and the role it plays in the search for genetic risk factors for human disease. 2. Describe how model organisms contribute to our understanding of the genetics of human disease. 3. Analyze the correlation between genetic markers and risk for disease using statistics software. 4. Compare the different types of genetic variants and their use in understanding the genetic architecture of human disease. 5. Inventory information about the current knowledge of the genetics of a particular disease.
