This can cause the entire body to have larger issues. These types of issues can also be caused in different ways.  There is a […]

Studies on Genetic Variation and Risks

One of the main reasons for studying the origins and nature of human genetic variation is that the similarities and differences in the type and frequencies of genetic variations among populations can have a profound impact on studies that attempt to understand the influence of genes on disease risk.  For example, some genetic variations, like
