Medical genetics differs from human genetics in that human genetics is a field of scientific research that may or may not apply to medicine, while medical genetics refers to the application of genetics to medical care. description this film describes the scientific principles and the research efforts involved in the development of a gene therapy for a congenital form of blindness, and how a young patient benefited from this medical breakthrough. medical genetics is the branch of medicine that involves the diagnosis and management of hereditary disorders. it has the potential to offer patients a transformational clinical benefit and dramatically improve quality of life. throughout twenty two- year publication, this journal has endeavored to report cutting- edge science in gene medicine that covers, but not limited to, the following topics: gene transfer medecin gene and its applications in gene and cell therapy, genome editing with precision nucleases, epigenetic modifications of host genome by small molecules, sirna, microrna.
