Availability: Immediately available upon ordering.
Description: Online training with immediate access upon enrollment. This course provides an introduction to the field of genomics. It covers the structure of the human genome, and the strategies that were used to map and sequence the genome, and details how genomic sequence information is utilized for pharmacogenomics, drug discovery and diagnostics. The course also introduces post-genomics technologies such as bioinformatics, functional genomics and proteomics.
Certification Requirements: Students must view the entire program and successfully pass an online, multiple-choice final assessment with >80% passing grade within a 90 day period of time (180 days for Professional Certification Programs). Certificate is accessible in PDF format immediately after satisfying requirements.
