Genes are the building blocks of heredity. They are passed from parent to child. They hold DNA, the instructions for making proteins. Proteins do most of the work in cells. They move molecules from one place to another, build structures, break down toxins, and do many other maintenance jobs. There are three types of genetic disorders: Single-gene disorders: where a mutation affects one gene. Sickle cell anemia is an example. Chromosomal disorders: where chromosomes are missing or changed. Chromosomes are the structures that hold our genes. Down syndrome is a chromosomal disorder. Complex disorders: where there are mutations in two or more genes. Often your lifestyle and environment also play a role. Colon cancer is an example.​

Genetic Counselling is the procedure by which the patients or relatives at risk of an acquired disorder are advised with the outcomes and nature of the disorder, the likelihood of creating or transmitting it, and the choices open to them in management and family planning. This mind-boggling procedure can be isolated into indicative and supportive aspects. The most surely understood sort of value transport is as DNA that encodes the common sense helpful quality to supplant the target changed quality. The polymer particles are packaged inside a vector which passes on the iotas inside and helps in their compromise. Gene Therapy is an exceptionally viable however simple to disprove sort of treatment of inherited issue dependent upon their level of sensibility and social and good affirmation.

Stem cells are cells originate in all multi-cellular organisms. They were isolated in mice in 1981 and in humans in 1998. In humans there are several types of stem cells, each with variable levels of potency. Stem cell treatments are a type of cell therapy that introduces new cells into adult bodies for possible treatment of cancer, diabetes, neurological disorders and other medical conditions. Stem cells have been used to repair tissue damaged by disease or age. In a developing embryo, stem cells can differentiate into all the specialized cells ectoderm, endoderm and mesoderm, but also maintain the normal turnover of regenerative organs, such as blood, skin, or intestinal tissues.

Gene mapping describes the ways used to identify the locus of a gene and also the distances between genes. The essence of all genome mapping is to put a group of molecular markers onto their several positions at the genome. Molecular markers come in all forms. Genes can be viewed as one special style of genetic markers within the creation of genome maps and mapped the same way as other markers. Mapped features that are not genes are called DNA markers. As with gene markers, a DNA marker must have at least two alleles to be useful. There are three types of DNA sequence feature that satisfy this requirement: restriction fragment length polymorphisms (RFLPs), simple sequence length polymorphisms (SSLPs), and single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs).

Cancer genetics is that the study of genetic mutations liable for most cancers, the usage of genome sequencing and bioinformatics. Medical genetics is to boost cancer treatment and results lies in determinant that sets of genes and gene interactions have an effect on different subsets of cancers. International cancer genome consortium (ICGC) is a voluntary scientific organization that provides a forum for collaboration among the world's main cancer and genomic researchers. Cancer-causing genetic changes can also be acquired during one’s lifetime, as the result of errors that occur as cells divide or from exposure to carcinogenic substances that damage DNA, such as certain chemicals in tobacco smoke, and radiation, such as ultraviolet rays from the sun. Genetic changes that occur after conception are called somatic changes.

Medicinal Genetics is the branch of medication that includes the analysis and management of the genetic issue. Medicinal Genetics varies from human genetics in that human genetics is a field of scientific research that might apply to the drug, while medicinal genetics research to the application of genetics to medical care. For instance, look into on the causes and inheritance of genetic disorders would be considered within both human genetics and medicinal genetics, while the diagnosis, management, and counseling people with hereditary disarranges would be considered part of medicinal genetics. Genetic Medicine is a newer term for medicinal genetics and incorporates areas such as gene therapy, personalized medicine, and the rapidly emerging new medical specialty, predictive medicine.

Cytogenetics is a branch of genetic science that's involved with how the chromosomes relate to cell behavior, particularly to their behavior throughout cellular division and meiosis. Techniques used include karyotyping, analysis of G-banded chromosomes, different cytogenetic band techniques, moreover as molecular cytogenetics such as fluorescent in situ hybridization (FISH) and comparative genomic hybridization (CGH). Neurogenetics is the part of genetics in the advancement and function of the nervous system. It considers neural attributes as phenotypes are primarily in view of the perception that the nervous systems of people, even of those having a place with similar animal types, may not be identical.

Immunogenetics is the study of the genetic basis of the immune response. It includes the study of normal immunological pathways and the identification of genetic variations that result in immune defects, which may result in the identification of new therapeutic targets for immune diseases. Immunogenetics contains a critical part within the examination of single characteristics of genes and their part within the manner in which traits or conditions are passed starting with one time then onto the following. The examination of the atomic and cell elements that include the protected structure, including their ability and association turns into the central craft of immunology. Immune system infections, for instance, kind one diabetes, are complex genetic characteristics that result from defects within the immune system distinguishing proof of qualities characterizing the insusceptible deformities might recognize new target qualities for remedial methodologies.

Nutrigenetics and nutrigenomics are defined as the science of the effect of genetic variation on dietary response and the role of nutrients and bioactive food compounds in gene expression, respectively. Exploitation of this genomic information along with high-throughput ‘omic’ technologies allows the acquisition of new knowledge aimed at obtaining a better understanding of nutrient-gene interactions depending on the genotype with the ultimate goal of developing personalized nutrition strategies for optimal health and disease prevention. There are three central factors that underpin nutrigenetics and nutrigenomics as an important science. First, there is great diversity in the inherited genome between ethnic groups and individuals which affects nutrient bioavailability and metabolism. Second, people differ greatly in their food/nutrient availability and choices depending on cultural, economic, geographical and taste perception differences. Third malnutrition itself can affect gene expression and genome stability; the latter leading to mutations at the gene sequence or chromosomal level which may cause abnormal gene dosage and gene expression leading to adverse phenotypes during the various life stages.

Epigenetics is the study of heritable phenotype changes that do not involve alterations in the DNA sequence. Epigenetics implies features that are "on top of" or "in addition to" the traditional genetic basis for inheritance. Epigenetics most often denotes changes that affect gene activity and expression, but can also be used to describe any heritable phenotypic change. Such effects on cellular and physiological phenotypic traits may result from external or environmental factors, or be part of a normal developmental program. The standard definition of epigenetics requires these alterations to be heritable either in the progeny of cells or of organisms.
