Biochemical genetics focuses on the pathophysiology, diagnosis, and treatment of inherited metabolic disorders. While individually rare, the combined incidence of these diseases is likely greater than 1:3000 live births. These conditions may present in the neonatal period as an acute, life‐threatening illness, or may manifest later in childhood with symptoms of progressive neurodegeneration, skeletal abnormalities, and/or dysmorphia.
Here are entered works on the study of genetics at the chemical level. [EPC]
