Ontario Tech acknowledges the lands and people of the Mississaugas of Scugog Island First Nation.

We are thankful to be welcome on these lands in friendship. The lands we are situated on are covered by the Williams Treaties and are the traditional territory of the Mississaugas, a branch of the greater Anishinaabeg Nation, including Algonquin, Ojibway, Odawa and Pottawatomi. These lands remain home to many Indigenous nations and peoples.

We acknowledge this land out of respect for the Indigenous nations who have cared for Turtle Island, also called North America, from before the arrival of settler peoples until this day. Most importantly, we acknowledge that the history of these lands has been tainted by poor treatment and a lack of friendship with the First Nations who call them home.

This history is something we are all affected by because we are all treaty people in Canada. We all have a shared history to reflect on, and each of us is affected by this history in different ways. Our past defines our present, but if we move forward as friends and allies, then it does not have to define our future.

HLSC 3463U – Human Genetics in Society

We are living in the post-genomics era. The human genome has been sequenced and the analysis of its code to reveal the function of its genes in health and disease is making breathtaking progress. There is considerable new knowledge that must now be applied in the health professions, and an understanding of the exciting topics within the field of genetics is an essential component of health sciences education. This course will begin by covering the principles of human genetics and heredity while highlighting the issues of genetics in our society. The second half of the course will concentrate on understanding the genetic basis of human disease and the impacts of genomics on healthcare.
