Vignettes in Human Medical Genetics
As a stand-alone or an add-on to Genetics 1 and 2, people who sign up will receive weekly access to short videos describing myriad modes of inheritance and concepts in genetics as is relevant to medical genetics.
Presenter: Michelle McCully & James Lyons-Weiler
Topics will include: The fundamentals of and examples of modes of inheritance and concepts in genetics: mutation, mendelian inheritance, loss-of-function, gain-of-function, autosomal dominant, sex-linked inheritance, two-hit hypothesis, polygenic, complex traits, chromosomal mutations, secondary non-disjunction, translocations, penetrance, linkage, pleiotropy, epistasis, epigenetics, anticipation, imprinting, variability expressivity, mosaicism, and chimerism as they related to medical genetics and human health.
