New Technologies for Studying Human Genetic Variation
The analysis of individual genetic variation is an important component of risk assessment. Recently a number of new technologies haye “been developed which can aid in the understanding of human variability at the genetic level. Together these techniques significantly enhance our ability to analyze the variation in the nucleotide sequence of specific genes in a population and to identify the spectrum of mutations in specific genes that are caused by a variety of agents.
