Dit vak wordt in het Engels aangeboden. Omschrijvingen kunnen daardoor mogelijk alleen in het Engels worden weergegeven.

Doel vak

To provide students with a critical understanding of ‘omics’
technologies, their interpretation and application in key areas of
healthcare and research.

Inhoud vak

The master course introduction to omics is designed to give students
insights into the molecular aspects of human genetics. The omics
technologies adopt a holistic view of the molecules that make up a cell,
tissue or organism. They are aimed primarily at the universal detection
of genes (genomics), gene expression (transcriptomics), proteins
(proteomics) and metabolites (metabolomics) in a specific biological
sample in a non-targeted and non-biased manner.

Onderwijsvorm

Tuition consists of lectures, participation in workgroups, homework
assignments, a laboratory visit, and computer practicals.

Toetsvorm

A final grade based on the average grade of 2 separate assessments: (1)
a
lecture on omics techniques used in a research paper of choice (30%
weight) and
(2) a final written exam (70% weight).

Literatuur

T. Strachan & A. Read (2018). Human Molecular Genetics (5th edition).
During the course, additional reading material based on the latest
developments in the field will be posted on canvas.vu.nl or distributed
in
class.
