This introduction to pharmacology and genomics provides experimental and analytical methods for high-throughput measurements. A review of key gene classes, drugs for which genetics is critical and resources for pharmacogenomics will be discussed and analyzed. Explore issues in the clinical implementation of pharmacogenomics testing and read key papers by leaders in the field. There will be problem sets and a final project selected with approval of the instructor.
