Human genetics describes the study of inheritance as it occurs in human beings. Human genetics encompasses a variety of overlapping fields including: classical genetics, cytogenetics, molecular genetics, biochemical genetics, genomics, population genetics, developmental genetics, clinical genetics, and genetic counseling. Study of human genetics can be useful as it can answer questions about human nature, understand the diseases and development of effective disease treatment, and understand genetics of human life (Wikipedia, Oct. 2008).
By opening of this site we would like to call all Iranian Human Geneticists and Physicians for a collaboration in order to improve clinical and paraclinical diagnostic techniques, as well as to detection of new candidat genes by recessive diseases in Iran.
Please send us your CV to complete our list of Iranian Human/Medical Geneticists.
