Extremely detailed set of notes that helped me achieve H1 in this subject. Has ample revision for exams, particularly bullet-point processes, pros & cons of genetic methods, case studies, and highlighted definitions for memorization.

Some tips to take into this subject:

- Have or learn some genetic biology, the first module is majorly based on the reproductive system & genetic inheritance (e.g. aneuploidy)

- Don't fret too much about the details that are NOT included in the 'what you need to know' slide at the end of each lecture. Basically, it's unnecessary but interesting info.

- Do remember every detail of major genetic testing processes, pros and cons of common ethical issues, etc. These will be the target of Section C in the exam- which requires you to write as much as you know in each topic.

- Make friends in your tutorial group! It will help if you team up for the oral presentation and get to explore your creativity together. (cupcakes are a must for bribery of the tutors ;))
