This lecture note covers the following
topics: Mendelian inheritance, Mendelian genetics, Meiosis and the Chromosome
theory, Gene mapping, Mutations and mutagenesis, Cytogenetics, Gene regulation,
Genetic interaction, Population genetics, Genetic diseases, Developmental
This book explains
the following topics: Mendelian analysis, The chromosomal theory of inheritance,
The chromosomal theory of inheritance, Brown Symposium, Chromosome Mutation,
Structure of DNA, Recombinant DNA techniques, Applications of recombinant DNA
techniques, Population genetics and Quantitative genetics.
Medical genetics involves the
application of genetic principles in the practice of medicine. Medical genetics
encompasses diagnosis and treatment of genetic diseases, study of inheritance of
diseases in families, mapping of disease genes to their chromosome locations,
study of the molecular genetics and pathogenesis of inherited disorders,
provision of genetic counseling for families, and recently, investigations of
methods for gene therapy. Topics covered includes: Mendelian Genetics, Non-Mendelian
Genetics, Clinical Cytogenetics, Dysmorphology, Genetic Counseling, Prenatal
Diagnosis, Clinical DNA Diagnosis, Cancer Genetics, Problem Solving in Genetics,
Legal and Ethical Issues in Human Genetics.
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.
This book contains important findings about the physiology
and genetics of Helicobacter pylori are summarized in this volume, it also
includes sections on epidemiology, bacteriology, bacterial virulence and
pathogenic mechanisms, pathogenesis in the host, diagnosis and treatment, animal
models, and other Helicobacter species.
