Chromosomal Disorders

Chromosomal Disorders

by Georgina Cornwall, PhD

Chromosomal disorders are diseases produced as a result of abnormalities in the morphology or deletion of chromosomes. Although not as prevalent as other disorders, chromosomal disorders are still encountered in daily practice and are distinctive for their characteristic clinical manifestations.

In this course, the student will be given an overview of the most relevant chromosomal disorders seen in clinical practice.

For optimal comprehension, the student should be familiar with the basic concepts of molecular and cell biology, with an emphasis on genetics.

Chromosomal disorders review
By Emeka I. on 29. April 2021 for Chromosomal Disorders

It's well presented and relatively easy to understand. It has helped me understand various concepts

By Viviana G. on 10. February 2021 for Chromosomal Disorders

i like but the fomr like the professor express can distract a little

I feel the lectures do not deliver what is required. With some improvements, it would be a 5/5 course
By David S. on 31. January 2021 for Chromosomal Disorders

I use Emery’s Elements of Medical Genetics 15th edition as primary study material, which i recommend for anyone to use. I decided to take this course as a supplement and ended up confused and annoyed. Simple learning objectives of this course lectures are harder to understand due to poor explanation and as far as i can tell the professor seems stressed, disoriented and confused herself. Lectures need a rework. Despite that, the articles are pretty good and helpful, PowerPoint slides are useful to an extend.

Good but a little confusing

Most of it was good and understandable but towards the end, it became quite confusing to follow along.
