Genomic Technologies in Clinical Diagnostics: Molecular Techniques

This course focuses on molecular techniques. By the end, you will be able to demonstrate knowledge and applicability of the molecular principles behind:
- array comparative genomic hybridisation (array CGH);
- karyotyping;
- fluorescent in situ hybridisation (FISH);
- Southern blotting;
- multiplex ligation probe amplification (MLPA);
- polymerase chain reaction (PCR) and Sanger sequencing;
- quantitative fluorescent PCR (QF-PCR);
- single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) genotyping and genome wide association studies (GWAS);
- and the extraction and analysis of cell free fetal DNA, including non-invasive prenatal testing (NIPT).
