HLSC 3463U – Human Genetics in Society


We are living in the post-genomics era. The human genome has been sequenced and the analysis of its code to reveal the function of its genes in health and disease is making breathtaking progress. There is considerable new knowledge that must now be applied in the health professions, and an understanding of the exciting topics within the field of genetics is an essential component of health sciences education. This course will begin by covering the principles of human genetics and heredity while highlighting the issues of genetics in our society. The second half of the course will concentrate on understanding the genetic basis of human disease and the impacts of genomics on healthcare.
