Human Molecular Genetics

NPTEL and Indian Institute of Technology Kanpur via YouTube


This is an introductory course designed primarily for students in the undergraduate or masters programs interested in biomedical research, genetic counseling, medicine, and clinical genetics. This course is expected to introduce rapid advancements in our understanding of the role of human genome in health and disease. We would introduce key concepts of inheritance of human traits, pedigree analysis, and chromosome organization. Molecular biology tools used for understanding the genome, gene structure and gene mutations, gene mapping and gene cloning strategies will also be covered. Objectives and outcome of human genome project and the HapMap project will also be discussed at the end.

    The course useful to understanding the basic of molecular biology and biotechnology. The course is well delivered and we'll arranged
  • Wazir Shafi
    The development of genomic tools and data sets has transformed the nature of medical discovery, enabling scientists to undertake comprehensive and powerful explorations rather than being confined to testing hypotheses focused on candidate pathways. With the completion of the first reference sequence of the human genome,3 attention shifted from searching for genes to discovering their functions.

    This season is very useful for me. And learning must and apply for a my daily life this type curses very difficult but in the video projector easyly to remind set
  • Ami Parmar
