This course provides an introduction to the human genome, including both description of relevant concepts as well as practical experience using Web-based bioinformatics tools to analyze DNA and protein sequences. Attendees will learn the structure and features of the human genome and the main types of variations that occur. They will be introduced to the three main online gateways where they will analyze both a single gene and gene sequences as well as explain how software programs predict the clinical significance of DNA variants.
