Advances in Genetics Research. Volume 22

Series: Advances in Genetics Research
BISAC: SCI029000

This volume includes five chapters, each detailing recent advances in genetics research. Chapter one discusses how germline predisposition diseases are associated with a dramatically increased risk of developing myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS), acute myeloid leukemia (AML), and other malignancies.  Chapter two explores how myeloid neoplasms originate from hematopoietic stem cells through the process known as clonal hematopoiesis. Chapter three summarizes current knowledge on the epigenetic changes induced by monoterpenes, providing an overview as well as recent findings regarding the topic of epigenetics. In chapter four, the authors investigate both the benefits and negative effects of genetic screening. Chapter five analyses the sequenced genomes of M. tuberculosis and the rearrangements of genes from the PE-PGRS family.
