OMICS Group International is an amalgamation of Open Access publications and worldwide international science conference and events established in the year 2007 with the sole aim of making the information on Sciences and technology ‘Open Access’. OMICS Group publishes 400 online open access scholarly journals in all aspects of Science, Engineering, Management and Technology. OMICS has 21 days rapid review process involving 30,000 editorial team members with 3.5 Million readers. OMICS ‘Open Access’ has been instrumental in taking the knowledge on science & technology to the doorsteps of ordinary men and women. Research scholars, students, libraries, educational institutions, research centers and the industries are main stakeholders that benefit greatly from this knowledge dissemination. OMICS Group also organizes 300 International Conferences annually across the globe, where knowledge transfer takes place through debates, round table discussions, poster presentations, International workshops, International symposia and exhibitions.
The term “medical genetics” has been variously defined as the science of human biological variation as it relates to health and disease; the study of the etiology, pathogenesis, and natural history of diseases and disorders that are at least partially genetic in origin; and the application of genetics to medicine or to medical practice. Furthermore, medical genetics services have been defined as “an integrated clinical and laboratory service provided for those with [or] concerned about a disorder with a significant genetic component and their families (this includes inherited and sporadic genetic disorders)….” These definitions embody the tension between medical genetics as a science and as a clinical area or specialty of medicine, but, clearly, medical genetics is really both. The main methods of investigations in Medical Genetics are Cytogenetics, Molecular genetics, Chromosome mapping, Clinical genetics, Clinical application of gene mapping, Population genetics, Genetic counseling.
The main significance of genetics in medicine also called as medical genetics is its role in the etiology of many disorders. Any disease is the result of the combined action of the genetic component and environment, but in many disorders, the role of genetic component is larger, even completely.
Current researches of genetics in medicine are
• Neurofibromatosis Type 1 (NF1)
• Schwannoma research
• Breast-ovarian cancer research
• Spontaneous arterial dissections
• Gene therapy studies for Very Long Chain Acyl Co-A Dehydrogenase (VLCAD) deficiency (a disorder of fatty acid beta oxidation)
• Familial melanoma
• Colon Cancer Family Registry
• Familial Cancer Program
• Rare or suspected genetic disorders
• Lysosomal storage disease
• Congenital disorders of glycosylation
involved in medical genetics are
• Slovenian Association of Medical Genetics
• Hellenic association of Medical Geneticist
• British society of Genetic Medicine
• Indian Academy of Genetic Medicine
The International Conference on Medical Genetics hopes to bring together an array of eminent speakers from leading institutions worldwide undertaking research in Medical Genetics. The primary focus of the conference is to highlight the recent trends, advances and future perspectives in the field of Medical Genetics, Genomics and other related disciplines.
