Improve your genomic literacy with this concise yet precise jargon-free introduction to genomics. The course is intended for a lay audience with little to know background in genomics and serves as a foundation for other courses in genomic and precision medicine. Topics include: 1. human genome structure and function; 2 types of genetic variation; 3. origins of genetic variation and 4. population-level genetic variation.
Jeanette McCarthy is a genome scientist and leading educator in the field of precision medicine. She spent the early part of her career in industry at Millennium Pharmaceuticals before transitioning to academia. She currently holds adjunct faculty positions at Duke University and UCSF and teaches Genomic and Precision Medicine in the UC system and online. In 2014 she helped launch the first consumer-facing magazine in this field, Genome, where she served as editor-in-chief. She has been designing and delivering custom workshops and courses to international audiences of health care providers, consumers and stakeholders for years and recently co-authored a new book from McGraw Hill Education, Precision Medicine: A Guide to Genomics in Clinical Practice.
