Learning outcomes

Knowledge

Upon successful completion of the course students will be able to identify and characterize main types of human genetic abnormalities, their characteristics and inheritance laws, to outline the characteristics of human inheritance patterns, to distinguish between heritable and sporadic mutations, to explain the interaction between genotype and the external environmental factors and its importance in human multifactorial pathology.

Skills

Students will be able to analyse and calculate the risk of genetic abnormalities for offspring, to identify the most common genetic abnormalities and interpret DNA diagnostic results.
