by Georgina Cornwall, PhD

A genome is defined as the set of genes in a living organism. Genomics is the branch of applied science focused on the structure, function, mapping, and editing of the genome of a particular organism. Genomics play a key role in a multitude of fields, including evolutionary biology and microbiology. For example, genetic mappings can shine light on antimicrobial susceptibility in a new bacterial strain.

In this course, the student will be introduced to the types of genetic mapping, methods of sequencing, and interpretation of genetic mappings.

For optimal comprehension, the student will be required to be familiar with the basic concepts of college-grade biology and chemistry.

Now, I know molecular biology as well as any medical student ought to! :)
By Carol W. on 20. August 2022 for Genomics

I, really, liked ALL of Dr. Cornwall's lectures, but did NOT find time to rate them! I am, still, trying to put it all together because molecular biology is my most difficult subject, but Dr. Cornwall put together much that I knew -- and I am far better off than beforehand! I, definitely, now understand as much as any medical student ought to about molecular biology -- and thus, I am glad that I made notes the whole way, giving me paperwork to re-think all that Dr. Cornwall taught me! Thus, I wish Dr. Cornwall the best and am grateful! :)

It was very comprehensive and I loved how easy it was to understand

she reads from her notes too much, strikes me as someone who does not have a firm grasp on what she is teaching.
