Which genes are responsible for the genetic disorders that affect more than 200,000 people worldwide?

Genetic disorders are among the most devastating of human diseases.The impact of each genetic disorder is felt throughout the whole of a person’s life, but in many cases the impact of one gene is enough to put a person in a lifetime of chronic pain, difficulty sleeping, or depression.The number of genetic disorders in the […]

Transmission Genetics and the Evolution of the Human Genome

Genetic variations are the genetic basis of human life.There are millions of variants that cause certain human diseases, as well as those that have been linked to other disorders, including diabetes, asthma, and cancer.The human genome contains millions of genetic variants that affect genes, chromosomes, and protein structure.As a result, scientists are able to identify […]
