The University of Exeter diabetes research teams and the Molecular Genetics team have collaborated to recently develop a MOOC (Massively-Open Online Course) with FutureLearn.com. This free online course introduces the topic of genomics and illustrates the clinical application of current knowledge in genomics, with particular focus on monogenic diabetes.
This course is designed for anyone who wants to learn about how the genomic era is changing medical science, including healthcare professionals, science undergraduates and non-specialists who just want to learn more about genomic medicine.
