MITES: Genomics Enrichment Course at the Broad

This summer in Genomics, sixteen MITES students were transformed into research scientists. In groups of four, students researched monogenic disorders such as Early Onset Breast Cancer and sequenced the DNA of several individuals to discover novel human genetic variation. Under the guidance of Broad researchers, the students sequenced the genes of diseased and healthy individuals, found mutations in the diseased genomes and studied their effects. In addition to the genomics lab research project, students also participated in a lecture series. Lecture topics included DNA technologies, an overview of genomics research, drug design, and the ethical and social implications of genomics research. Needless to say, the students truly had a blast!
