Human genetics is the medical field with the most rapid progress. This book aims to provide an overview on some of the latest developments in several genetic diseases. It contains 14 chapters focused on various genetic disorders addressing epidemiology, etiology, molecular basis and novel treatment options for these diseases. The following is a list of genetic disorders and if known, type of mutation and the chromosome involved. Although the parlance "disease-causing gene" is common, it is the occurrence of an abnormality in these genes that causes the disease. Genes and Disease is a collection of articles that discuss genes and the diseases that they cause. These genetic disorders are organized by the parts of the body that they affect.

Such a scrutiny of records of matings is called . What is a genetic disease or disorder? Learn from a list of genetic diseases that are caused by abnormalities in an individual's genome. There are four main types of genetic inheritance, single, multifactorial, chromosome abnormalities, and mitochondrial inheritance. Genetic testing is available for some genetic diseases. While most stem cell books focus on basic aspects and/or cell therapy, this book emphasizes the relevance of stem cells obtained from patients, the so-called “patients in a petri dish” as tools to investigate human genetic diseases for which there are no available effective treatment.
