The following are courses in the Genomics Graduate Certificate program.
GN 701: Intro to Genomics
This course explores the history of genetics and genomics. Family history is discussed as a vital part of a genetic risk assessment and tool for evaluation of inheritance patterns and penetrance of disease. The course concludes with a review of the epigenetic influences on health and epidemiologic approaches to evaluate health and disease and applications in genomics.
GN 702: Genetic Concepts Testing and Translation to Healthcare
The course will serve as the basis for the healthcare professional to integrate genetics and genomics into personalized healthcare. The course will provide the clinician a review of sources of information available to the student in genomic healthcare for clinical management and therapeutic applications.
GN 703: Ethical, Legal, Social Issues in Genomics and Pharmacogenomics
This course exposes students to the ethical, legal, and social issues surrounding genetic testing and genetic testing available in a direct‐to‐consumer approach. Approaches to engage individuals as partners in healthcare will be explored in the course, as will the expanding applications of pharmacogenomics.
GN 704: Cancer Genomics and Applications of Genomics in Health and Disease
This course exposes the student to the role of genetics and genomics in cancer diagnosis prognosis and treatment. Future directions of genetics and genomics with comprehensive genome/exome/transcriptome sequencing in oncology, polygenic risk scores cell-free DNA, and genome-wide and phenome-wide association studies are addressed. Genomic technologies and ̀computational approaches that are driving advances to manage health and treat disease will be reviewed.
