An Introduction to Genomics in Health Science

Graduate Programme in Public Health

Contents & aim
Genomics is a rapidly evolving and emerging field that encompasses approaches at DNA (genetics and epigenetics) and RNA (gene expression) levels. Each of these fields offers the possibility to understand and explore the etiology of diseases and health traits in a way that was previously unthinkable. Different high-throughput technologies can rapidly provide high-resolution data for the biological processes within cells at multiple levels, allowing for accelerated discoveries in health and disease.

This 3-day course aims at introducing to biomedical researchers a foundational understanding of genomics, epigenomics and transcriptomics, laboratory techniques, and motivating practical applications in disease and health researches.
