Learning Objectives:

  • Describe recent advances in the field of genomics and how they are accelerating research in a broad range of applications
  • Examine the implications of these advances for the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of infectious diseases and other disorders around the globe
  • List the ways in which genomic information can be used in response to emerging epidemics
  • Recognize the advantages of novel CRISPR-based diagnostics in combatting infectious disease outbreaks, which include direct detection from non-invasive bodily fluids, visual read-out requiring only a heat block for equipment, rapid assay development in response to an emerging outbreak, and SNP detection
