Course Description
Omics 101 provides the foundation for understanding fundamental principles and application of genomics and pharmacogenomics in clinical and laboratory practice. Understand what is meant by terms like genome and exome; learn the fundamental principles of laboratory practice, including DNA sequencing, laboratory analysis, and management issues. Understand the roles and responsibilities of the genomicist as a partner in providing team-based care. Well-known experts in each field give in-depth didactics on state-of-the-art subjects in genomic medicine. Each lecture is followed by a question and answer session.

Course Objectives
Upon completion of the program, participants should be able to:

  • Explain the use of medical genomics information in clinical practice
  • Discuss the use of "omics" technology in advancing patient care for diagnostic dilemmas, cancer therapy, and drug therapy
  • Identify patients who may benefit from referral for consideration of genomic analysis
  • Distinguish ethical, legal, and social issues for patients with diagnostic dilemma, cancer patients, and drug-gene pair applications
  • Discuss the role of the genomicist in providing patient care.

This enduring material is a recording of the Omics 101: A Primer for Clinical Practice (September 29, 2013) on DVD. After reviewing the course lectures on DVD, CME credit may be claimed by completion of several on-line assessment modules. Assessment modules are separated by topic area.
