Reproductive Genetics and Epigenetics
Reproductive genetics is a division of science that deals with the genetic involvement of a reproductive process, both natural and abetted. Now, it enlarges to include studying genetic and epigenetic modifications of genome and its effect on reproduction. Genetic factors are significantly responsible for infertility, abortion, miscarriage, malformation, and cancer. Reproductive genetics is becoming integral to today’s reproductive practice due to upsurge in the burden of reproductive disorders. Epigenetics denote to covalent modifications of DNA and core histones that regulate gene activity without altering DNA sequences. Human disorders linked with epigenetic abnormality's comprises rare imprinting diseases, molar pregnancies, and childhood cancers. Germ cell development and early embryo development are serious times when epigenetic patterns are began or maintained.
