This course aims to provide postgraduate training in genomics relevant to medical applications to a multidisciplinary cohort of graduates with backgrounds in the molecular life sciences and quantitative or computational sciences. With continuing advances in the technologies that are used to sequence DNA, medical applications of genomics are becoming increasingly important. It is now possible to diagnose rare genetic diseases from genomic sequences, while sequencing of tumours has become an important means of refining therapeutic choices in cancer treatment. With backgrounds ranging from the molecular life sciences to mathematics, statistics and computer science, graduates of this programme will gain a shared set of core skills in genomics and practical experience of applying these skills to biological samples and data.
