|MODULES||This unit is a module of:|
Extensionson the most important issues of Medical Genetics, from different pattern of inheritance to technologies of genome analysis and problems concerning prenatal and post-natal genetic diagnosis.
Drawing-up of a family pedigree on the basis of family history.
Using the family tree as help in diagnosis of inherited diseases frequently observed in the Italian population.
Knowledge about most important inherited diseases and their clinical implications.
Knowledge about most important conditions associated with chromosome defects and genetic tests used for their diagnosis.
Knowledge of most important genetic tests (diagnostic, presymptomatic, predictive and prenatal).
Knowledge of the indications for a molecular genetic test.
Knowledge of the most important purposes and how to use genetic counselling.
Knowledge of individuall and ethical problems concerning the diagnosis of inherited diseases.
Participation to the proposed learning activities by taught classes, together with the individual study will allow students to
Drawing-up of a family pedigree on the basis of the family history.
Learn about most important inherited diseases and their clinical implications.
Learn about most important conditions associated with chromosome defects and genetic tests used for their diagnosis.
Learn about the most important genetic tests (diagnostic, presymptomatic, predictive and prenatal). Indications, purposes and peculiarities.
Learn about the most important purposes and how to use genetic counselling.
The course consists of 10 hours of taught classes on all the topics listed above. The last part of each lesson is dedicated to solving simple genetic problems.
Please refer to AulaWeb for any specific communication regarding possible changes related to COVID19 pandemic.
Human Mendelian inheritance: basics and extensions, selected examples.
Cytogenetics: numerical and structural chromosomal anomalies, main methodologies of analysis.
Molecular bases of inherited diseases: examples and methodologies of diagnosis.
Genetic tests: different types, purposes and applications in pre- and post-natal settings.
Genetic counselling (definition and purposes).
Slides and all the material used during taught classes will be provided to students together with the indication of selected and specific websites useful to deepen the different topics.

Lessons will start in the second semester, generally in the first week of march according to the calendar published on Aulaweb and on the Unige WEB Agenda available at https://easyacademy.unige.it/portalestudenti/).
For the Medical Genetics II module, the exam will consist of a written test with both open and multiple choice questions.
The final examination is made up of a single written exam for the 3 sub-sections. In order to pass the examination the student has to reach a passing grade of at least 18/30.
The total amount of time allowed for the examination is around 90 minutes.
Students enrolled in other universities or other degree courses who are only required to sit for some of the sub-sections must achieve an average passing grade, depending on the number of subsections.
In relationship to the evolution of the COVID19 pandemic, the exam may be transformed in an oral examination through a web platform provided by Unige. Please refer to AulaWeb for any specific communication regarding this important issue.
Students are assessed by a final exam aiming at ensuring that they have actually reached the required level of knowledge. In order to pass the examination and to reach a passing grade of at least 18/30, the students must prove their knowledge on:
Drawing-up of a family pedigree on the basis of the family history, describe the main mendelian inheritance patterns.
The most important conditions associated with chromosome defects and genetic tests used for their diagnosis.
The most important genetic tests (diagnostic, presymptomatic, predictive and prenatal).
The indications and purposes of a specific molecular genetic test; aims and importance of the genetic counselling.
