Human Genetics

Instructor
Hales

This upper-level seminar focuses on different human genetic disorders each week with primary research papers as our main resource. We will explore 1) the methods by which the genes associated with each disorder were identified; 2) the biology of the disorder at the organism, tissue, cell, and molecular level; and 3) strategies to treat each condition with gene therapy and other methods.
