I would like to thank the Professors teaching this lecture. They did a wonderful job in explaining this vast subject in 7 weeks. I could grasp the content of the lecture quickly. The lectures are excellent and to the point. An excellent introduction to this upcoming field of Precision Medicine. Very interesting!

Good to learn for the people working in clinical genomics

My ultimate goal is to use the knowledge in designing better software offerings for oncologists to utilize molecular testing data in their clinical decision making, so only by the week 7 of this course I felt the materials directly related to my interest. However, I doubt not having the basis of general genomic and precision medicine will make it much easier for me to digest further work specific resources going forward. Appreciate the thorough and structured lessons!

I'm really impressed with the materials and presenters. I strong recommended this course for every medical doctor nowadays.
