Preimplantation genetic diagnosis (PGD) is an alternative to prenatal diagnosis for ensuring the genetic health of offspring born to families affected by inherited disease. This paper sets out to review current protocols for the diagnosis of single gene defects in human preimplantation embryos. These methods, which depend on DNA amplification using PCR, are subject to a variety of pitfalls, such as allele dropout (ADO), contamination and reduced amplification efficiency. Advances in single cell… CONTINUE READING
