Very nice course.

Excellent course on fundamental genomics applied to medicine!

Tiis course is excellent. There has been an explosion in genetic testing, sequencing, and analyzing and I needed a comprehensive course to get me up to speed. The first two weeks talks about basics then clinical applications, then specific applications. Since I am a Pediatric Neurologist, I wish they had discussed children's genetic diseases. Maybe that would be a good topic for a future course. The instructors were very well prepared and discussed each topic clearly. Although it didn't take much time Some of the material was heavy. I think this course requires attention.

Amazing course, very informative! Thank you Dr. McCarthy, Dr. Nussbaum and other lecturers!
