The course will introduce students to the most important issues of Medical Genetics, from different patterns of inheritance to recent technologies for genome analysis. Moreover, it will supply essential skills to face problems concerning prenatal and preimplantation genetic diagnosis, including current law/legislative tendencies.
The Course aims to introduce students to the basic and most relevant aspects of medical genetics. At the end of the course students will achieve the following outcomes important in the current clinical practice of medical genetics.
At the end of the teaching and learning activities students will be able to:
Class will be managed as frontal lectures on all topics of the program with Power Point presentations. The last part of each lesson will be dedicated to simple genetic problems solving.
Students can take advantage of online material, available on the AulaWeb page (https://www.aulaweb.unige.it). At the end of the Course, students will be allowed to access a simulation, and subsequent collective correction, of exam tests.
If necessary, lessons may be provided on-line, through specific platforms provided by the University, in relationship with the dispositions related to the Public Health situation.

The exam is a written text (multiple choice questions) - either to be taken on-line or in presence- during which students are requested to answer 10 questions spanning through all main items presented during the course.
The test will be timed, allowing 10 minutes for each set of 10 questions (this applies both for on-line and in presence test sessions).
The exam aims to verify the students’ required level of knowledge and understanding about topics discussed during the course, concerning the most frequent hereditary diseases in Italian population, the main types of genetic tests, the main causes of chromosomal abnormalities and the problems related to prenatal/preimplantation genetic diagnosis. Moreover, the exam will allow to evaluate the reached skills in distinguishing the inheritance of a disease through family pedigree analysis.
Registration for the exams is strictly limited to the on-line registration system. No students will be allowed to take the exam if not enrolled or if enrolled by any other means. If students experience troubles/inconveniences while enrolling, they are strongly encouraged to contact the on-line student service IN ADVANCE to the enrolment deadline.
Topics covered during lessons are summarized by the power-point presentations available on the AulaWeb page (https://www.aulaweb.unige.it).
