Human Genetic Diversity

Julian C. Knight

Oxford University Press

This final chapter seeks to provide a brief overview of some of the important insights that have been established from work investigating human genetic diversity. The remarkable range of human genetic variation is discussed together with advances in understanding the genetic basis of disease and the functional consequences of genetic diversity at a molecular level. Longer term application to individualised medical care including pharmacogenomics is reviewed.

Keywords:   human genetic variation, polymorphism, genetics of common disease, pharmacogenomics
