This module aims to provide students with knowledge
about advances and applications in the field of genomics.
It includes a review of the genome structure, its mapping
and sequencing, the use of model organisms, and an
understanding of the use of expression sequence tags
(ESTs) and single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs),
as well as techniques used to study gene functions and
generate transgenic animals and mutant species. The
genetic aspect of diseases, the Human Genome Project,
the applications of molecular biology in the diagnosis of
diseases, and the identification of genetic variations are
