Human genetics are in all fields of medicine of high importance as many diseases or abnormalities are linked to genetic causes.
The term human genetic diagnostic summarizes all analysis of human genetic information. The genetic information of humans consists of DNA (deoxyribonucleic acid) and includes over 20,000 genes, which are arranged on 46 chromosomes. The analysis of DNA segments allows to identify genetic predispositions which can be associated with certain diseases. In many areas genetic testing is already an important diagnostic tool.
