About this Unit
Genomics is the application of our knowledge of the structure and expression of genomes to understanding gene function and the genetic basis of human disease. The Unit will begin with an introduction to the human genome and its relationship to the genomes of other organisms. It will also teach how genome-wide analysis of genetic variation in individuals and populations is improving our understanding of diseases such as asthma, heart disease, obesity, dementia and cancer. Practical application of genomics in the areas of pharmacogenomics, gene therapy/genetic medicine, genetic discrimination and ethics will also be covered.
