Got a presentation coming up soon, gotta cover 4 sections or a given genetic disease. The sections are;
and Mechanism of Action.
I understand all except Identification. Would that be how it was found or how they began to understand what gene is involved with the disease and what the disease does to the specific disease?
It's really bugging me, I don't want to overlap phenotype and identification.
I can see where symptoms of the disease would overlap slightly with phenotype, I guess you could think more along the lines of diagnosing the disease, including fluorescent labelling in PCR followed by electrophoresis, genetic mapping and others. You could also talk about genetic pedigrees (but that would overlap with inheritance).
