This course is for those young professionals in Clinical and Medical genetics who want to learn about Clinical Genomics in the era of NGS. The course is based on the experience established by the European School of Genetic Medicine (ESGM) since 1988 with its 29 yearly courses in Medical Genetics and more recently with its NGS courses, which are now merged.
Starting from the basic notions of medical genetics and bioinformatics covered during the first two days, the course will offer a more specialized training in the following four days, designed for young clinicians and clinical laboratory specialists (in training) and for PhD or postdoc trainee scientists.
Morning plenary lectures are followed by afternoon workshops conducted by 1-2 Faculty with groups of 15-25 students, for more in-depth discussion of the morning’s topics.
Bioinformatic workshops are taught using computers and databases. Clinically-oriented workshops will use an interactive discussion format.
