The student will learn about the methods for detecting chromosomal and molecular genetic disease via disease-specific/system-specific topics, including a comparison of genetic screening programs and the efficacy of screening tests. The student will be given an overview of population genetics, specifically how genes move through a population and how they maintain equilibrium. The student will learn about neuronal disease and diseases associated with mitochondrial dysfunction. The students will learn about cancer genetics and the pathways by which normal function of cells is disturbed leading to cancer....
