Review current genomic sequencing technologies while exploring the scientific and medical applications that these technologies are enabling. Instruction centers on traditional and next generation sequencing including: genetic test design strategies, bioinformatics workflows at genomic scale, population genetics and medicine. For each topic, we start with theoretical considerations and explore current literature examples. Coverage of current and developing next generation sequencing technologies is the primary goal. Bioinformatics aspects are explored from both theoretical and practical perspectives. Discussion of genetic applications enabled by emerging technologies is touched upon.
