Cells must follow genetic instructions to survive. Understanding DNA's structure and function have enhanced disease pathway research, genetic mutation detection, and drug development. It is therefore imperative to understand genes and their functions, which will in turn help us to know more about diseases and their clinical significance, and therefore ultimately lead to better treatment. In this course, we will learn about the structure and function of DNA and the importance of the genetic code and its characteristics. We will also look at the importance of precision medicine and the UK Biobank and how these can be integrated together to improve patients’ treatment.
