AbstractThe mechanisms of disease development will be studied. Main topics will be: Genetic regulation of disease development with a focus on monogenic and polygenic forms. In addition the methods used in elucidating genetic components in disease progression will be discussed. Ageing and development associated disease progression including the underlying molecular mechanisms.
ObjectiveTo understand the mechanisms governing disease development with a special emphasis on genetic and ageing associated components to understand the mechanisms governing disease development with a special emphasis on genetic and ageing associated components.
