Genomic Technologies in Clinical Diagnostics

Next Generation Sequencing

This course is designed for scientists and healthcare professionals with an interest in obtaining a postgraduate-level understanding of genomic sequencing technologies. If you are completing both Genomic Technologies in Clinical Diagnostics courses, we recommend that you complete Genomic Technologies in Clinical Diagnostics: Molecular Techniques first. And if you are new to the field, we recommend that before you start either course, you complete The Genomics Era: the Future of Genetics in Medicine – the first in the Genomics in Healthcare program from St George’s. You can use the hashtag #FLgentechNGS to talk about this course on social media.
