This course explores the genomic revolution’s impact on medical science, clinical diagnoses, and cutting-edge treatments, illustrating both where the genomic ideology has triumphed and where it has failed. We dive into diagnostic sequencing technologies, preimplantation, prenatal and preventive medicine, and explore current gene therapies including the promise of genome editing, as well as, debate the genomic revolution’s multifaceted ethical implications.
