This is a summary of my lecture notes (which I had written down in a book), which I used for my exam revision and it helped it quite a lot. It also includes a list of genes studied (linked to their disease and some key points) and lecture questions (with answers) which were given each week.

Contents of summary notes include:
- The Human Genome: The Human Genome Project and Genomics
- Mendelian Genetics, Recombination, Haplotypes and Linkages
- Human Genetics: Genetic Variation in Health and Disease
- The Genetic Analysis of Populations - Linkage Disequilibrium and Non-Mendelian (complex) Genetics
- The genetic analysis of populations Genome-wide association studies - GWAS
- Sequencing the Human Genome, Next generation sequencing
- Cancer Genetics
- Gene expression and gene expression profiling
- eQTL Epigenetics. DNA methylation Imprinting and X-inactivation
- The Genetics of Ageing (Alzheimer’s disease) Stem cells Induced. Pluripotent Stem Cells
- Chromosomal Abnormalities
- Genetic Testing

Hope this helps you out as much as it did to me!
