Gene

Genes are the building blocks of inheritance. Read more about genes and the currently experimental technique of gene therapy. The study of genes is called Genetics. Genes play a significant role in many diseases. Passed from parent to child, genes contain instructions for making proteins. If genes don't produce the right proteins or don't produce them correctly, a child can have Genetic Disorders.

Gene therapy is an experimental technique that uses genes to treat or prevent disease. The most common form of gene therapy involves inserting a normal gene to replace an abnormal gene. Other approaches include

  • Swapping an abnormal gene for a normal one
  • Repairing an abnormal gene
  • Altering the degree to which a gene is turned on or off
  • Although there is much hope for gene therapy, it is still experimental.

Find the information on over 1400 human genes, including the normal functions of human genes and the health implications of genetic changes.
