Abstract

Genetics is the study of heredity. In this introductory chapter of the book Genetics of Endocrine Diseases and Syndromes, we present the basic terms of genetics and basic physiological and pathogenic molecular processes that are implicated in the wide array of genetically determined diseases. Mutations, chromosomes, polymorphisms, and epigenetic terms are also briefly discussed.
