Learning outcomes

The course provides the principles of medical genetics and pharmacogenomics. It aims to show when and how the genetic factor, defined at different resolution levels (from chromosomes to single nucleotide) plays a role in the variability of Mendelian and complex diseases, and of the variability of drug-response. The course aims to provide students with the tools to be able to evaluate critically and independently the results of scientific research in the field of medical genetics and pharmacogenomics.
