Substantial advances have led to the evolution of voice as the newest subspecialty of otolaryngology. Nevertheless, little is known about the genetics of voice. Genetic research is needed to further elucidate the relationship between vocal tract structure (including ultrastructure) and function, mechanisms of voice dysfunction, and transmission of normal and abnormal voice characteristics.
