For many genetic disorders, increased knowledge has led to a better understanding of the underlying causes, allowing genetic diagnosis and preventive medicine, as well as the development of new therapies based on the molecular biology. For some people, these developments in genetic science have been disconcertingly rapid, as… CONTINUE READING
