This course will concentrate on the advances in Human Genetics that have been made available by the Human Genome Project. Students in class, via discussion with fellow students and research, may play the role of a genetic counselor. They will utilize a historical perspective to appreciate the new developments and advances in the basic science of Human Genetics to ultimately focus on genetics in clinical medicine. Students will demonstrate an appreciation of how medical researchers treat specific disease states by understanding/reviewing the changes made in the science of Genetics from Mendelian genetics to molecular genetics, to the present analysis of the Human Genome. Anyone with an interest in health-related issues will have both a need and a desire to better understand the inheritance of human disease. This course will include applications to Human/Medical Genetics via genetic screening/counseling and social/ethical issues.
