About the course

In recent years, developments in epigenetics and microbiomics have profoundly impacted our understanding of human health and the treatment of diseases. Researchers are now able to develop treatments and diagnostic tools that take into account unique differences between individuals.

This course provides a comprehensive introduction into this fascinating new field, from basic definitions and operating mechanisms of epigenetics and microbiomics to more complex topics such as computational analysis.

This course is an elective course in the Stanford Genetics and Genomics Certificate.

You Will Learn

  • The basic mechanisms of epigenetic regulation of gene expressions
  • The role of genetic and epigenetic markers in human health, including the impact of lifestyle and diet
  • How epigenetic markers can influence aging, metabolic disorders, and neuropsychiatric diseases
  • How the study and analytics of microbiomics have impacted disease treatment and how we define health
  • Approaches scientists are using to "decode" the human epigenome and microbiome

Time to Complete

You should expect to spend 10-18 hours to complete each course, depending on your familiarity with the topic.

For individual courses, we recommend that you designate 2-3 hours per week to watch video lectures and complete assignments in order to finish within 60 days.

Since the All-Access Plan allows you to access all courses for one year, you can determine how quickly to progress, but you must complete courses with 365 days in order to receive credit.

Certificate

You can earn the Stanford Genetics and Genomics Certificate by successfully completing the two required and any four elective courses. You may enroll in courses individually or through the All-Access Plan.

Final Exam

Online participants are asked to complete a final exam at the end of each course to maintain the integrity of the program. A score of 85% must be achieved to successfully pass the exam. A digital record of completion will be emailed to participants when they pass the exam.

Course Evaluation

Participants are required to complete the course evaluation once they have passed the final exam.
