GS11 1013   Genetics and Human Disease

Hanis, Craig; Boerwinkle, Eric. Three semester hours. Fall annually. Prerequisite: consent of instructor; general genetics and statistics recommended

This course introduces principles and methods of human genetic analysis with special reference to the contribution of genes to our burden of disease. Although molecular, biochemical and morphogenic processes controlled by genes will be briefly surveyed, the aim is to describe the analytical processes whereby genetic mechanisms are inferred and genes located on chromosomes. Fulfills GSBS quantitative area breadth requirement.
