Biomedical Professionals, Biotechnologists, Andrologists and Embryologists
This course defines the different types of chromosome abnormalities and genetic diseases, as well as their incidence and origin. It focuses on genetic aspects that have implications on human fertility and the reproductive options in couples who carry genetic diseases and with a risk of chromosome abnormalities. In the end, it introduces genomics and systems medicine in the field of assisted reproduction.
