This is the study of human biological variation as it relates to health and disease.
This is the provision of comprehensive diagnostic, management, treatment and counseling services to individuals and their families.
The study of an individual's genome, including interactions of those genes with each other and with the person's environment.
Structure of genome (genes and base pairs), spurred the discovery of over 2500 diseases, advanced the processof disease gene identification, development of over 350 biotechnology products, Human HapMap project and the ELSI research program.
What are some things that came out of the human genome project?
Ethical, LEgal and Social implications research program. It examines ethical, legal and social issues related to the human genome research.
What is the ELSI and what does it do?
Database of human variants using 11 global populations to study genetic factors contributing to variation in response to environmental influences, in susceptibility to infection and the effectiveness of drugs and vaccines.
What is the HapMap project?
Genomic Wide Association Studies which is a rapid scan of the genomes for genetic variants for specific disease-useful to identify variants in complex diseases.
What is the GWAS?
