July 11, 2019: This course has been reformatted. The number of available seats has been increased from 16 to 30. Registration has been turned on again so that students can self-register.

NOTE: This is an upper level Medical Genetics course requiring independent learning, class discussion and strong background in basic genetics. We strongly recommend at least a 'B' grade in both BIOL335 and BIOL338 as pre-requisites.

Location: Room 1410, Life Sciences Centre, 2350 Health Sciences Mall, UBC Campus.

The Course Co-ordinator for 2019W is Dr. Carolyn Brown.
