The fundamental aspects of genomics and bioinformatics that underpin clinical practice
This Wellcome Genome Campus UK course aims to meet the training needs of genetic counsellors, and nurses providing genetic healthcare, as they upskill in response to the roll-out of genomic sequencing in the clinic. This year’s course will focus on the practical applications of genomics with several ‘hands-on’ workshop sessions.
- The role of genomics in healthcare
- Cancer genomics
- Cardiac genomics
- Testing in the real world
- Variant interpretation
- Functional studies and analysis
- Visualising and reporting genomic data
- The (future) role of genetic counsellors in genomic healthcare
The course is aimed at practicing Genetic Counsellors and Nurses delivering genetic healthcare and working directly with patients in the UK or internationally. Applications from clinicians delivering genetic healthcare are also welcomed.
