As per available reports about 130 journals, 182 Conferences, 50 workshops are presently dedicated exclusively to genetic diseases and about 2,400 articles are being published on the current trends in genetic testing. In terms of research annually, USA, India, Japan, Brazil and Canada are some of the leading countries where maximum studies related to genetic testing for diseases are being carried out. As reported in article “A unique mutation profile is a significant feature in several pediatric genetic disorders in India by Bashyam “Mendelian genetic disorders constitute an important health problem worldwide and cause extensive mortality among children in India. With no effective treatment options, prenatal diagnosis and genetic counseling remain principal management options for most genetic disorders. We have performed mutation screening for several common and rare genetic disorders among Indian children and carrier parents following informed consent and clearance from ethics committee. Our analysis included relatively well characterized disorders such as β-thalassemia and Phenylketonuria (PKU) and other rare diseases including Mayple Syrup Urine Disease (MSUD), Farber disease and Hypohidrotic Ectodermal Dysplasia (HED). Our work has revealed differences in the frequency of relatively rare β-globin gene mutations among β-thalassemia patients from North and South India. More importantly, we detected a high proportion of transcript modifying mutations in the Phenylalanine hydroxylase (PAH) gene in PKU patients from India as against other world populations where patients are known to harbor a high proportion of missense (PAH) mutations. Presence of a founder ectodysplasin A receptor mutation has resulted in a high frequency of autosomal recessive form of HED in India unlike other populations wherein a high frequency of ectodysplasin mutations make the X-linked hypohidrotic Ectodermal dysplasia the most common HED subtype”.
The Journal of Gene technology is an academic journal – hosted by OMICS International – a pioneer in open access publishing–and is listed among the top 10 journals in genetics. Each year research scientists have noticed a rise in the number of congresses being held in this field. The Journal of Gene Technology provides a unique platform to researchers and scientist to explore the advanced and latest research developments in the field of genetics, genetic testing, susceptibility and pre disposition thus bridging the gap between researchers and young scientists.
OMICS International – a pioneer in organizing international conferences (5th Cell and Gene Therapy Conference May 19-21, 2016, San Antonio, USA Cell and Gene Therapy Conference is to ameliorate the knowledge, awareness, and education on cell and gene therapy leading to the discovery of genetic and cellular therapies which aid to alleviate the human disease as it is the most significant emerging technology in the eyes of Medical, Biotechnology, Pharmaceuticals and Academia. Cell and Gene Therapy Conference 2016 is an excellent opportunity for the delegates from Universities and Institutes to interact with the world class Scientists).
|OMICS International hosts over 700 leading-edge peer reviewed Open Access Journals and organize over 1000 International Conferences annually all over the world. OMICS International journals have over 3 million readers and the fame and success of the same can be attributed to the strong editorial board which contains over 50000 eminent personalities that ensure a rapid, quality and quick review process. OMICS International signed an agreement with more than 1000 International Societies to make healthcare information Open Access.|
