I have my first one tonight (pharmacogenomics), even though finals week doesn't start until Saturday. My last one is on Dec 15th.

Good luck to everyone and study hard.

There's a lot of memorizing of what gene does what, or what drug's response is affected by a change in gene XYZ. At least they aren't making us memorize each polymorphism found in every gene.

I found the class interesting. I enjoyed genetics during undergrad and it is nice to see it being put to another use besides nailing criminals.

We've looked at mutations in receptors and how they affect drug response, mutations in metabolizing proteins that can cause increased toxicity to certain drugs, specific transporter protein mutations, a couple of genetic disease states, genetic testing and a few other things.

Does sound like an interesting class! It's being added as a separate class at my school whereas it used to be combined into kinetics/pharmacology.

I am finished with my first semester of pharmacy school and I am still alive. Although barely. Alas, I am going to go sleep until Jan 6th. Goodnight all!

Actually, i liked the class alot too. It was real interesting and even though genomics is hardly ever used I learned some pretty cool and important stuff. Plus alot of it was a repeat from AP biology so i got a nice 1/3 semster review going over the basic biochem and mendelian genetic part I liked it a whole lot more than therapeutics

I can't believe that they are doing that to you (Christmas homework!)-- what a bunch of jackasses.

Shoot. I forgot that we also have homework (careplan evaluations and review of hyperlipidemia and hypertension) to do that is due the first day back from winter break. It's like being in elementary school. :laugh:
