The Primer in Genomic Medicine is a new one day face-to-face interactive masterclass that provides a short, sharp burst of the basic essentials required to be conversant in contemporary Medical Genomics. The masterclass will be delivered at a high level in order to provide an informative overview of the field. No prior knowledge is required.
o Understand basic Genome structure/architecture
o Relate how genetic variation identified through sequencing can impact protein to cause disease
o Recognise alternative variant types and explain their potential to cause disease
o Identify typical inheritance patterns in families
o Summarise key attributes of alternative contemporary Genomic sequencing approaches
o Relate the importance of accurate, comprehensive clinical phenotyping
o Appreciate ethical issues concerning informed consent, incidental findings, and relevance of personal diagnoses to extended pedigree members
This masterclass is aimed at GPs, Specialist Trainees, Nurses, and the wider group of Scientists and Health Professionals who are not necessarily directly involved with applications of Medical Genomics but require a basic knowledge.
