Wellcome Genome Campus, Hinxton, CB10 1RQ, UK

General Information

This re-vamped course, previously called Fundamentals of Clinical Genomics, will address the scientific aspects of human genetics and genomics that underpin genetic diagnostics and clinical practice, focusing on the latest technological and bioinformatics developments to enable better interpretation of genetic variants.

This advanced course is suitable for both clinical geneticists (consultants and trainees) and clinical scientists delivering genetic healthcare, and is designed to equip attendees with the skills required to work in the fast-paced, new era of genomic medicine. Applications from other clinicians who are using genomic data in their everyday practice are also welcome.

The course will be delivered by leaders in genomics and participants will have the opportunity to learn from those who developed the tools and are working at the cutting edge of genomic medicine.
