About

The goal of the Human Genetics program of the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) is to train the next generation of leaders in human genetics and genomics.

Overview

This rapidly evolving field of research incorporates multiple areas of modern experimental biology (including but not limited to molecular and behavioral genetics, epigenetics, biochemisty, cell and developmental biology, imaging, and large-scale omics approaches such as genomics, transcriptomics and functional genomics) and of computational biology (including bioinformatics and biostatistics). In their research, students tackle Mendelian diseases and genetically complex traits of key relevance to human health.

Areas of Study

A wide variety of courses are offered during the Human Genetics program of the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) to equip future independent researchers with fundamental knowledge about state-of-the-art methods for generating experimental data on a genome-wide scale and computational and statistical approaches to draw from the data sound conclusions of biological and medical significance. In addition, courses on medical and ethical issues provide students with a societal perspective on human genetics.

Programme Structure

Courses include:

  • Advanced Human Genetics A: Molecular Aspects
  • Applied Genetics Modeling
  • Computational Genetics
  • Theoretical Genetic Modeling
