Genomics is the science that studies the structure, content and evolution of genomes.
The human genome decodification represented a historic landmark which opened the doors to studies in comparative genomics, evolution of humans, genotype-phenotype association studies and for the discovery of genes or genetic regions, their functions and relation to illnesses or risks. The development of genome sequencing technichs has lead to an acceleration of the knowledge in this field. Moreover, the appearence of new generation sequencing methods, allowed the production of a huge amount of genetic data and the need of bioinformatic tools to analyze and interpret them.

To get a good use of the subject and to achieve a good progress, students must have basic knowledge of molecular biology and genetic.
Good skills in English to allow the understanding of the explained subject as well as the active participation in the activities, classes and works raised in the subject, are necessary
Each block will be presented in the classroom exposing the fundamental concepts.
At the same time, seminars and workshops will be carried so that students can secure the learned concepts. Also clinical cases will be exposed.
The practical lessons and the seminars will be programmed related to the theoretical agenda. This is intended to deepen and provide a practical insight from the contents explained.

Subject planning could be modified due unforeseen circumstances (group performance, availability of resources, changes to academic calendar etc.) and should not, therefore, be considered to be definitive.
TEACHING AND LEARNING METHODOLOGIES AND ACTIVITIES:
Teaching and learning methodologies and activities applied:
Theoretical sessions: Transmission of content through oral presentation and ICT support. Each topic will be presented in a synthetic way with a practical and scientific approach. Through practical workshops it is intended that the student relate the knowledge learned with situations related to professional life. During the sessions the teacher may require the participation of the students and the delivery of written material. The students may expose their doubts or difficulties during their development.
Tutoring sessions of optional assistance: in these sessions the student may ask the teacher in person as well as through the virtual platform questions that have not been clarified in the classroom. During this time the student may request a specific extension bibliography on a specific topic and / or any other information related to the subject.
Practice sessions that will have the objective of showing geneticist activities in the laboratory at a practical level. How to use the bioinformatics tools for the analysis of genomic data and how to treat the findings as professional and for patients or specialists from different professional fields.
