REPRODUCTIVE GENETICS

What is Reproductive Genetics?

Reproductive Genetics is a part of medical genetics, which studies the genetic mechanisms of development of violations of human reproduction.

Modern science is constantly evolving, getting more and more information about human genes and their mutations leading to congenital abnormalities and the probable infertility. Therefore, we must understand that very often the cause of infertility, miscarriage and various congenital diseases in children is genetics. That’s why it is very important to pass all researches in modern high-tech genetic clinic, allows to carry out cytogenetic and molecular genetic testing.

Nevertheless, it is important to know that the number of diseases does not increase, but diagnostic capabilities become much more accessible, as well as new genetic diseases are detected. Possibility to specify the name of the disease sometimes provides family an opportunity to choose...

Different Research Methods of the Embryological Material

Embryo preimplantation genetic testing (PGS – preimplantation genetic screening) in aim to select chromosomal normal embryos for embryo transfer has launched in late 80’s evolving from FISH analysis to comprehensive chromosome screening by other methods. Some reproductive genetic laboratories worldwide still utilizes FISH as a main tool for PGS despite the fact that in 2007 a multicenter,...
