Genetics, Genomics, and Precision Medicine - Past, Present and Future
This webinar will present an overview of the topics of genetics and genomics. We will explore why genetics is relevant to everyday life, where it shows up, why you should care and why having a basic knowledge is important. There will be discussion of key terminology and technology supporting modern precision medicine. We will talk about computing and its role in genomics. No experience with bioinformatics computing is needed to take this class. The goal is for participants to leave comfortable talking about modern genomics and precision medicine, some key parts of its history and the future of the field.
