This note covers the
following topics: quantitative versus qualitative genetics, Hardy-Weinberg law
for gene frequency stability in large populations, Relationship and inbreeding,
Estimation of breeding values, Inbreeding, crossing and bred structure,
Chromosomes and chromosome aberrations, Genetics on hair and coat colour in
mammals, Estimating- and biotechnology and disease resistance.
Advanced Genetics provides an overview of
basic concepts and techniques in genetics and their use in answering fundamental
questions in biology. The lectures focus primarily on studies carried out in
yeast, C. elegans, Drosophila, mouse, and humans to illustrate the power of
genetics as an experimental tool.

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, Human
Genetic Diseases contains many diverse chapters, dealing with human genetic
diseases, methods to diagnose them, novel approaches to treat them and molecular
approaches and concepts to understand them. Although this book does not give a
comprehensive overview of human genetic diseases, and the sixteen book chapters
will be a valuable resource for researchers and students in different life and
From the National Center for Biotechnology Information,
Genes and Disease is an online 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.
