About

Molecular genetics plays an increasingly important role in medical research. The course addresses various molecular principles relevant for genetic epidemiological research. Different approaches will be discussed to come to the localisation of disease genes.

Cloning of disease genes will be discussed from the bench point of view and with the use of modern bioinformatical methods. The course is particularly relevant for clinicians and epidemiologists who wish to be introduced in methods for identifying (complex) disease genes and its practical applications and basic knowledge of molecular biology.
