Introduction to Genetics Training Course

Primary tabs

Duration Duration

14 hours (usually 2 days including breaks)

Requirements Requirements

A Bachelor of Science recommended but not required.

Overview Overview

This course has been created for people who want to make reasonable decisions related to genetics, e.g.:

  • managers introducing new products using genetically modified plants
  • researchers whose main area or expertise is not genetics but they need to feed the results of genetic research into their work
  • computer programmers who are going to deal with data related to DNA
  • forensic experts, judges, lawyers, who need to make decisions based on DNA profiling (aka DNA testing or DNA matching)

It can be helpful for people who simply want to understand how genetics works.

It is a more narrative course in terms of the story, starting from the very origin of life and explaining how our genetic code has evolved over time and how can we trace the ancestry of human evolution.

Using the story of evolution, the trainer introduces you into scientific lingo and explains the workings of genes, DNA and RNA, heredity and natural selection.

The lecture is intertwined with simple exercises, quizzes and tests to make sure you understood the concepts and facts.

This course does not cover moral, political or religious point of view of genetics, but presents confirmed facts, not theories or conjectures.
