Learn about whole genome sequencing in healthcare

Whole genome sequencing has been in use behind the scenes for some time, but now it’s becoming part of routine care with the introduction of the NHS Genomic Medicine Service. But when should it be used? How does it work? And what are the implications, both in healthcare and for families?

Join the Genomics Education Programme’s free, flexible online course on 2 November to learn from expert scientists, medics and researchers, as well as patients and families, how valuable this revolutionary test can be in a number of areas – most recently in the current fight against Covid-19.

The course is delivered through a range of articles, videos, animations and discussion forums facilitated by experts. Prior to enrolling on the course, join our Twitterchat on 22 October to find out why now is the time to learn about whole genome sequencing.
