Human genetics is the study of inherited variations occurs in human beings. In simple terms, Human genetics is the study of the human genome and how genes are transmitted through generations. It is the study of the inheritance of characteristics by children from parents. Human genetic research helps to study about susceptibility to diseases of particular individual and hence reveal the information about the individuals future health. It generates knowledge and also potential to improve individual and community health.
In human genetics, various fields are included namely known as cytogenetic, classical genetics, biochemical genetics, molecular genetics, genomics, developmental genetics, population genetics, clinical genetics, and genetic counseling. The study of human heredity plays an important role in genetics. Much of this interest has desire to know who humans are and why they are as they are. Practically understanding of human heredity plays an important role in diagnosis, prediction, treatment of diseases that have a genetic component. Determining the genetic basis of human health has given rise to medical genetics. In general, the terms medical genetics and human genetics are often considered synonymous because medicine has given focus and purpose to human genetics. Advances in human genetics like sequencing of the human genome, have greatly increased the power of both gene discovery and diagnosis and treatment of both rare and common diseases.
