Medical genetics is the specialty of medicine that involves the diagnosis and management of hereditary disorders. Medical genetics differs from Human genetics in that human genetics is a field of scientific research that may or may not apply to medicine, but medical genetics refers to the application of genetics to medical care. For example, research on the causes and inheritance of genetic disorders would be considered within both human genetics and medical genetics, while the diagnosis, management, and counseling of individuals with genetic disorders would be considered part of medical genetics.. In contrast, the study of typically non-medical phenotypes such as the genetics of eye color would be considered part of human genetics, but not necessarily relevant to medical genetics (except in situations such as albinism). Genetic medicine is a newer term for medical genetics and incorporates areas such as gene therapy, personalized medicine, and the rapidly emerging new medical specialty, ...

Author: Ian D. Young. Edition: First (reissued). Publisher: Oxford University Press. Pages: 320. Price: £29.99. ISBN 9780199594610. Ian Youngs textbook aims to review the basic genetic principles and relevant genetic diseases covered during the study of medical genetics by medical and biomedical science students. The book successfully achieves that aim, presenting the information in a logical order so that the concepts that often confuse students are made easy to understand.. The first few chapters act as a review of the basics of genetics, including transcription and translation, mitosis and meiosis and a summary of mutations and chromosome rearrangements. These chapters seem to be intended for revision purposes rather than as an introduction to the subject, and serve as a helpful reminder of what students may have forgotten from their first year.. Young then goes on to explain simple Mendelian inheritance, including how genes are identified and the inheritance of complex disorders. After the ...

Despite satisfying our criteria (MAF,0.2%, CADD,11), the variants in 12 families did not meet the American College of Medical Genetics and Genomics variant interpretation categories 1, 2 or 3.39 In 8 of these 12 families, one of the RDVs is a splice variant beyond±2 basepairs from the intron-exon junction, for which the functional effect on splicing has not been assessed. In 4/12 families, one RDV is a synonymous variant whose functional effect has not been evaluated. Therefore, we list these families separately in online supplementary table S5 and excluded them from gene-phenotype analyses.. In addition, we identified five families with pairs of RDVs in each of two genes (see online supplementary table S6). In 3/5, the variants in one gene appeared much more likely to be causal than the variants in the second gene (eg, a homozygous frameshift mutation in C5ORF42 vs two missense variants in CSPP1, which harbours exclusively truncating mutations in our cohort). In these three families, the more ...

What was your path to becoming a physician-scientist?. I started as a physician in 1984 at the age of 24. During the first 10 years, I did basic research while working part-time as a physician. Because of my PhD (1992) on cyclic AMP-dependent protein kinase and apoptosis, I worked in the anatomy and cell biology department at that time. But I missed having clinical contact, so I decided in 1996 to change fields completely to medical genetics. That leap of fields was accompanied by a change in my research interests. Now I run a lab while seeing patients in clinic. I am happy that I made the change because in medical genetics you have the advantage that research questions manifest in a number of patients that walk through the door. You have all these very challenging and interesting patients that you see, and now you have the tools to really find out a lot about them. I feel quite privileged to work in medical genetics these days because we can do so much more than before. My background in basic ...

Conclusions Segregation analysis indicated three possible digenic segregation models: (i) autosomal inheritance with mutations on different chromosomes, resembling recessive inheritance (five families); (ii) autosomal inheritance with mutations on the same chromosome resembling dominant inheritance (two families) and (iii) unlinked autosomal and X-linked inheritance having a peculiar segregation (four families). This pedigree analysis provides evidence for digenic inheritance of Alport syndrome. Clinical geneticists and nephrologists should be aware of this possibility in order to more accurately assess inheritance probabilities, predict prognosis and identify other family members at risk.. ...
From a review of this edition: If youre not clued up on your heterozygotes, or your isochromosomes, or if you havent the foggiest who Gregor Mendel is, you need to catch up on your genetics and this is the book to do it with. This textbook is designed to give both medical student and doctor a clear understanding of the principles of genetics and how these apply to modern day medicine. It is one of the best textbooks I have ever read on the topic, starting from the very basics and building on that knowledge, packing a great deal into such a slender 400 page paperback, including lots of diagrams, photographs and case studies to illustrate themes and genetic conditions highlighted in each chapter. The book deals with the role of genetics in medicine and the statistics of population genetics concisely yet competently, as well as scrutinising the genetics behind human disease. Modern day issues are dedicated their own chapters, including cytogenetics, the methods behind the Human Genome Project ...

Asthma is a chronic respiratory disease whose genetic basis has been explored for over two decades, most recently via genome-wide association studies. We sought to find asthma-susceptibility variants by using probands from a single population in both family-based and case-control association designs. We used probands from the Childhood Asthma Management Program (CAMP) in two primary genome-wide association study designs: (1) probands were combined with publicly available population controls in a case-control design, and (2) probands and their parents were used in a family-based design. We followed a two-stage replication process utilizing three independent populations to validate our primary findings. We found that single nucleotide polymorphisms with similar case-control and family-based association results were more likely to replicate in the independent populations, than those with the smallest p-values in either the case-control or family-based design alone. The single nucleotide polymorphism that
Sometimes the link between a disease and an unusual gene variant is more subtle. The genetic architecture of common diseases is an important factor in determining the extent to which patterns of genetic variation influence group differences in health outcomes.[12][13][14] According to the common disease/common variant hypothesis, common variants present in the ancestral population before the dispersal of modern humans from Africa play an important role in human diseases.[15] Genetic variants associated with Alzheimer disease, deep venous thrombosis, Crohn disease, and type 2 diabetes appear to adhere to this model.[16] However, the generality of the model has not yet been established and, in some cases, is in doubt.[13][17][18] Some diseases, such as many common cancers, appear not to be well described by the common disease/common variant model.[19]. Another possibility is that common diseases arise in part through the action of combinations of variants that are individually rare.[20][21] Most ...

Simulation based learning environments are designed to improve the quality of medical education by allowing students to interact with patients, diagnostic laboratory procedures, and patient data in a virtual environment. However, few studies have evaluated whether simulation based learning environments increase students knowledge, intrinsic motivation, and self-efficacy, and help them generalize from laboratory analyses to clinical practice and health decision-making. An entire class of 300 University of Copenhagen first-year undergraduate students, most with a major in medicine, received a 2-h training session in a simulation based learning environment. The main outcomes were pre- to post- changes in knowledge, intrinsic motivation, and self-efficacy, together with post-intervention evaluation of the effect of the simulation on student understanding of everyday clinical practice were demonstrated. Knowledge (Cohens d = 0.73), intrinsic motivation (d = 0.24), and self-efficacy (d = 0.46) significantly

The objective of the study is to know the frequencies of insertion/deletion (I/D) allele and association of angiotensin converting enzyme (ACE), I/D polymorphism in Jammu and Kashmir (J&K) populations in relation to type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) and hypertension (HTN). A total of 500 individuals were recruited for the present study. Out of these 500 individuals, 250 individuals had T2DM and HTN and 250 were healthy controls. Genotyping was performed using polymerase chain reaction (PCR) using allele specific oligonucleotide primers. The allele frequency for I allele and D allele was found to be 63% and 37% in patients with T2DM and HTN and 48% and 52% for healthy controls. Genotype frequency for homozygote insertion (II), heterozygote (ID) and homozygote deletion (DD) allele was in range of 99.23, 116.55 and 34.23 for patients with T2DM and HTN and 56.64, 124.71 and 68.64 for healthy controls. ID versus II+ID model for odds showed a significant association of ACE I/D polymorphism with T2DM and
A group of Russian scientists, among them staff at the Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology, have proposed a new method for the comparison of metagenome-coupled DNA sequences from all of the organisms in a sample of biological material being investigated. The method makes it possible to more effectively and quickly solve the task of comparing samples and can be easily embedded in the data-analysis process of any metagenome study. The study has been published in the BMC Bioinformatics journal.. The bacteria, which inhabit the human body, hold a special place for scientists in the study of metagenomics. The significance of metagenomics cannot be underestimated: on a rough estimate the bacterial cells in our body outnumber our own by an order of magnitude and most of them are located in the gut. Various global projects, such as the Human Microbiome Project, have revealed that the composition of the bacterial community affects our risk of disease, the selection of an optimal diet, mood and ...
The need for revisiting the classification of ectodermal dysplasia syndromes has come. Prior to considering a new way to classify this group of disorders, however, thought should be given to some basic ideas about terminology and the process of classification. Consequently, this article reiterates the meanings of the words ectoderm, dysplasia, genetic and syndrome, and describes the process by which numeric taxonomists go about classification. In the process, a new family with the Jorgenson syndrome is described and the inheritance of the Schopf syndrome is clarified. Finally, the backgrounds of those with vested interests in the ectodermal dysplasia syndromes are described in order that all approaches to classification are covered. © 2009 Wiley-Liss, Inc. ...

Achondroplasia is an autosomal dominant genetic disorder. It includes skeletal growth deficiency (endochondral ossification disorders). People affected by this disease have short stature, osseous/skeletal abnormalities, (abnormal body proportion, reduced limbs in relation to trunk length , backbone curvature, knees varua and characteristic facial dysmorphism. Intellectual development is normal (except for patients accompanied with hydrocephalus ...
