Introduction to Medical Genetics

Introduction to Medical Genetics

by Georgina Cornwall, PhD

Medical genetics is the branch of medicine that focuses on the study and diagnosis of inherited disorders, including those related to chromosomes, single mutations, multiple mutations, and translocations. Although not as prevalent as other disorders, genetic syndromes may still be encountered in daily practice. There are multiple variants of genetic syndromes and inherited conditions.

In this course, the student will be given an overview of the history of medical genetics and a recap of the most important concepts from the molecular and cell biology course.

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

I would like to inform you that from 3:54 onwards there is neither the transcription nor the translation in other languages. I hope you will solve it as soon as possible because some concepts I cannot translate from English into Italian. Thank you in advance
