Course Status: Registration Closed
The course starts with tissue sampling methods and basic DNA dynamics. Genetic technologies such as RFLP analysis, PCR, gene profiling and expression analysis, gene chips, FISH, and epigenetic analysis are covered. More advanced genetic techniques include Next Generation Sequencing of genomes and exomes, as well as metabolomics, and transcriptome analysis. CRISPR-cas9 is described in fine detail, and its potential use in all areas of gene editing is presented. Somatic vs. germline gene therapy techniques are compared in efficacy to CRISPR. In utero treatments by CRISPR and SLENDR are analyzed. Other topics include chromosome analysis, cancer genetics and cytogenetics, stem cells, cloning, and optogenetics. The genomic level of analysis is pervasive in the course.
*Chat Hours provide an opportunity for the instructor and students to communicate in "real time". It is an informative and interactive session where course related questions, answers, and discussions take place. While student attendance during chat hours is not required, it is highly recommended. Weekly chat sessions are archived for students who are not able to participate in the live chat sessions at the scheduled times.
