Genetics has revolutionized the field of science and technology in the recent past. Thorough knowledge of the subject will help you succeed in life. Be it a student or just a curious and inquisitive mind, this course will help you understand and grasp the complex processes involved in human genetics.

A section on genetic diseases helps you understand the genetic basis behind the disease which afflicts humanity as a whole or your own body as an individual.

Gene Therapy and Genetic engineering are also interesting topics to learn and which will help you see into the future of medicine.

What is human genetics? According to wikipedia, “Human genetics is the study of inheritance as it occurs in human beings. Human genetics encompasses a variety of overlapping fields including classical genetics, cytogenetics, molecular genetics, biochemical genetics, genomics, population genetics, developmental genetics, clinical genetics, and genetic counselling.”

According to Britannica encyclopedia, “A new era in cytogenetics, the field of investigation concerned with studies of the chromosomes, began in 1956 with the discovery by Jo Hin Tjio and Albert Levan that human somatic cells contain 23 pairs of chromosomes. Since that time the field has advanced with amazing rapidity and has demonstrated that human chromosome aberrations rank as major causes of fetal death and of tragic human diseases, many of which are accompanied by intellectual disability.”
