Description

Faculty: Prof. André Uitterlinden, PhD, Joyce van Meurs, PhD, Fernando Rivadeneira, MD PhD


Molecular genetics plays an increasingly important role in medical research. The course addresses various molecular principles relevant for genetic epidemiological research. Different approaches to localize disease genes will be discussed. Cloning of disease genes will be discussed from the bench point of view and with the use of modern bioinformatical methods.The course is particularly interesting for clinicians and epidemiologists who wish to be introduced in methods for identifying (complex) disease genes and its practical applications and basic knowledge of molecular biology.

Objectives

  • To understand the background of the application of molecular techniques in medicine and epidemiology
  • To understand how disease genes are identified
  • To be updated about advances in molecular genetics and population genomics

Participant profile

The course is particularly interesting for clinicians and epidemiologists who wish to be introduced in methods for identifying (complex) disease genes and its practical applications and basic knowledge of molecular biology.
