Need to review the basic principles of genomic sequencing? Want to learn about how genes, genomics, and genetic sequencing intersect with public health? Then you might want to take a look at these free tutorials and case studies created by Public Health England (PHE).
These tutorials were designed for public health workers who need a basic understanding of genomic sequencing and and its application to epidemiology and public health. e-Pathgen – Using Genomics to Support Public Health utilizes videos, a collection of introductory tutorials and illustrated case studies to take viewers through epidemiological investigations that utilize genomic data along with more familiar forms of information.
The objectives of these e-learning modules are to explain the basic principles of genomic sequencing, learn about the benefits and limitations of genomics to epidemiology practice, and practice the application of the principles of genomics to solving public health problems.
