Course Description

410.761 - Pharmacogenomics

This course will explore the relationship between an individual's genetics, epigenetics and microbiome and the efficacy of drugs and biologics. Through the use of case studies from disease states such as cancer, immunological deficiencies, metabolic issues students will understand the interplay of genetics and treatment. Students will be introduced to concepts and assays, including prognostic genotyping and diagnostic expression used to determine an individual's treatment options including individual genetic profiling. Pre-requisites: 410.602 Molecular Biology, 410.610 Epigenetics Gene Organization and Expression.
