ANAT2341 Lab 3 2013
Human genetic diseases
This practical contains the first of a series of tutorials designed to support the group projects. We will discuss various techniques used to diagnose and identify the genetic abnormalities found in many human congential illnesses.
Objectives of this laboratory
- second short answer/ multiple choice test of last week's lecture material (Week 3 of human development)
- Tutorial on human genetic disorders, diagnosis, mapping and modern techniques such as genome sequencing.
- Provide time for groupwork and allow groups to ask questions of lecturing staff.
Human developmental diseases
There are many common and rare human genetic diseases. Some are due to mutations of a single gene - monogenic disorders e.g. Cystic Fibrosis, Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy Some are due to chromosomal abnormalities - polygenic disorders e.g. Williams-Beuren syndrome, Downs Syndrome
- (Some common genetic diseases) examples of specific genetic disorders NHGRI
- (Comprehensive database of human genetic disorders and associated genes) Online Mendelian Inheritance in Man OMIM
Diagnosis of human genetic diseases
Classical mapping strategies of human genetic disease
Modern methods in human genetics
