Whole Genome Sequencing: Decoding the Language of Life and Health

23 January 2017 Online

Health Education England's Genomics Education Programme (GEP) will be running its online course ‘Whole Genome Sequencing: Decoding the Language of Life and Health’, on 23 January. The course explores the ins and outs of whole genome sequencing and features interviews with leading scientists and medics working at the forefront of this new technology.

Led by Dr Anneke Seller, the GEP’s incoming Scientific Director, the course has been developed to give learners an insight into how whole genome sequencing works as well as its varied uses within healthcare – from personalised treatment of cancer to cutting edge ‘walking labs’ tackling Ebola and Zika.

With a recap on the fundamentals of genetics and real life case studies, the course is ideal for non-experts. Please sign up here.
