This course will introduce strategies and methods for identifying the genomic loci associated with inherited human traits and human disorders. It will introduce concepts and methods of functional genomics, pharmacogenomics, and personalised medicine. This course will include the history of the human genome sequencing projects (including sequencing of ancient human genomes such as Neanderthal) and then progressively explain the structure and composition of the human genome. The knowledge gained from human genome sequencing will be used to explain the patterns of evolution of human populations around the world, together with patterns of genetic variation (including single variants such as SNPs and structural variants), and how these relate to human health and disease. Examples of human inherited traits and diseases will be studied. Bioinformatics tools will be used to illustrate, or elaborate, each of the topics presented
