Genomic Variant Analysis &Clinical Interpretation
Genomic Variant Analysis & Clinical Interpretation is an online course providing hands-on exposure to analysis and clinical interpretation of genomic variants.
THE COURSE IN NUMBERS
While genomics is increasingly being applied in clinical settings for diagnosis, prognosis and precise management of diseases, there is a dearth of expertise and knowledgebase to adequately interpret evidence on genetic variants to impact healthcare decisions. This course provides an overview of the concepts and methods of genomic variant analysis and clinical interpretation.
What will I learn ?
You are expected to learn about the basic concepts of genetics and genomics, variant nomenclature and tools for variant analysis as well as their clinical interpretation. The course would follow the Standards and guidelines for the interpretation of sequence variants as per the joint consensus recommendation of the American College of Medical Genetics and Genomics (ACMG) and the Association for Molecular Pathology (AMP). Individuals who clear the course are expected to be well versed with the basic concepts of genomics as well as approaches to independently evaluate evidence and interpret the pathogenicity of genetic variants.
Genomics of Rare Diseases in India
Genomics for Understanding Rare Diseases India Alliance Network (GUaRDIAN) is a consortium of over 280 clinicians and researchers from over 70 medical and research centers making it one of the largest clinical genomics research networks in India for Rare Genetic Diseases.
The programme is funded by CSIR India. Learn more
The CSIR-IGIB Sanofi Genzyme Fellowship in Genomics for Medical Professionals aims to introduce fundamental aspects of genomics and molecular medicine to clinicians through short-term visit, interaction and hands-on training on specific aspects of genomics with the faculty at the CSIR-Institute of Genomics and Integrative Biology (CSIR-IGIB) in Delhi.
