  • Genetic factors including aneuploidies and single-gene mutations are also contributed to the male infertility. (wikipedia.org)
  • However, it is possible that these mutations individually have no major effect and only contribute to the male infertility by collaboration with other contributors such as environmental factors and other genomics variants. (wikipedia.org)
  • include
