This course is designed to provide an introduction to human genetics and the genomic approaches used currently to understand disease mechanisms for those working in dermatology and skin biology.
The programme will provide an understanding of contemporary genomics as applied to skin genetics in health and disease. It will provide an overview on genetic variation and molecular mechanisms of skin diseases. It will have a focus on genomic technologies and analyses including high throughput sequencing for DNA and RNA. Participants will also be exposed to the methods and approaches required to analyse large genetic data sets.
The discussion-based course is aimed at clinical dermatologists and skin biology researchers including those in training. Applications from clinical lecturers, specialist trainees and consultants are welcome.
The course is endorsed by The British Association of Dermatologists, Dermatology and Genetic Medicine (BADGEM).
