Welcome to Forethought India One-on-One Courses. Our program is designed to provide students with the skills and knowledge necessary to excel in their chosen profession. Our instructor for this course is Professor Ian Goodfellow at University of Cambridge.


"Genetics Decoded: Unraveling the DNA Basics" is an enlightening course that takes you on a journey through the fundamental concepts of genetics and the intricate world of DNA. In this comprehensive course, we delve into the very essence of life by exploring the structure and function of DNA, the blueprint of all living organisms. Through a series of engaging and informative lectures, you will gain a deep understanding of DNA replication, genetic mutations, Mendelian genetics, epigenetics, population genetics, and cutting-edge DNA technologies. This course also addresses the ethical and legal aspects of genetics, as well as the profound impact of genetics on fields like medicine, drug discovery, and gene therapy. Whether you're new to the subject or seeking to expand your knowledge, "Genetics Decoded" provides you with the insights and tools to comprehend and appreciate the fascinating world of genetics, from the basics to the latest advancements, and to make informed decisions in a rapidly evolving field.


At the end of the program, students will receive a certificate & performance letter by the educator indicating that they have completed the program and acquired the necessary skills and knowledge to excel in their chosen profession.

Genetics Decoded: Unraveling the DNA Basics, by Ian Goodfellow at Cambridge

  • Ian Goodfellow is Professor of Virology and Deputy Head of Department (Pathology). His research focuses on the mechanisms of RNA virus replication and pathogenesis as well as the identification of control measures for the prevention or treatment of infections. His lab established the use of reverse genetics to study the molecular basis of norovirus pathogenesis, developing the first infectious reverse genetics system for noroviruses and the study of no viruses remains their main focus. During the 2014-16 Ebola virus epidemic, Professor Goodfellow was involved in the establishment and running of one of the first diagnostic facilities in Sierra Leone before subsequently returning to establish an in-country next generation sequencing facility to enable rapid sequence analysis of Ebola viral samples. Professor Goodfellow now holds an honorary position at the University of Makeni, Sierra Leone where he has established a research facility for post-Ebola capacity building.
