Forensic Genetics and Massively Parallel Sequencing

when 5 August 2019 - 16 August 2019
language English
duration 2 weeks
credits 5 EC
fee DKK 5000

This summer, you have the chance of receiving a comprehensive insight into forensic genetics and a broad introduction to massively parallel sequencing (MPS) work including data analysis. Join our summer course and learn more about the fascinating work in forensic genetics, MPS, and get hands-on experience with data analysis within MPS.

The course focuses on relevant forensic topics such as:
•Crime scene investigation and trace samples
•DNA profiling and weight of the evidence
•MPS of forensic genetic markers (SNPs, STRs, and mitochondria)
•Molecular autopsy (sudden cardiac death)
•Paternity and relationship testing
•Future forensic investigation (prediction of age and externally visible characteristics)
