Genes and the Human Condition (From Behavior to Biotechnology)
What are genes? What are the functions of genes? What caused diseases? How can genes be detected and expressed? This course is designed to provide a basic understanding of the biology of human genes and gene expression, while also focusing on the history and genetics of many human diseases. We will take a brief history of how genes were discovered, and examine how genes are expressed, and the different forms they take. We will take an overview of the major human genes affected by various conditions, and how these genes are expressed. We will also take a closer look at cancer, where we will take an in-depth look at several genes that are relevant to the different stages of the disease process. We will look at several genes that are relevant to cancer growth and spread, and we will take a closer look at the link between cancer and the epigenetic blueprint. We will also take a brief look at several other human diseases, including obesity, diabetes, and many others. Our course will focus on the biology of these conditions, while also taking a deeper look at their genetic underpinnings. This course is designed to give you a basic understanding of the basics of human genetics, and you will learn how to use genes to diagnose and tease out various diseases. You will also learn how to use these genes to predict and treat them, using the basic tools of genetics.

Genomics and Precision Medicine
Genomics and Precision Medicine

Genomics and Precision Medicine is a four-lesson course that covers the major techniques for analyzing genome-wide DNA sequencing data, and specific methods for performing genomic analysis and diagnostic testing.

We will focus on the practical issues involved in running genomic analyses, including techniques for performing the major types of SNP “proteins” (short atomic nucleotides), and how to consider the type of cancer, the age of the organism, and the environment (proteins, DNA, and DNA replication, cancer, and other phenotypical abnormalities). We will also focus on the techniques used to perform SNP “proteins” in Genome Sequencing (GSS) data, including analysis of reads from the SNP’ that have the strongest effects, and how these reads are compared to each other and to the genome.
