PHS 5705: Recent Advances in Public Health Genomics
Credits: 3
The course will cover human genetics and genomics, including the human/mammalian genome variation, determination of genomic variation on phenotype and disease risk, mapping and characterizing genetic variants on phenotype, determining the putative impact of genetic variants on gene expression (transcriptomics, epigenomics), the promise and implications of genome science on precision medicine and the ethical, legal & social implications. Prerequisites: BIOL 3010 or BIOL 4210 or instructor consent.

BIMS 8030: Current Topics in Genome Sciences
Credits: 1
Each week, a UVA faculty member or guest lecturer will summarize current work in their area of research. The emphasis in these lectures will be on high-throughput genomic and bio-informatic approaches to elucidating the mechanisms of pathogenesis in human disease and disease models.
