A common abnormality is caused by nondisjunction , the failure of replicated chromosomes to segregate during Anaphase II. A gamete lacking a chromosome cannot produce a viable embryo. Occasionally a gamete with n+1 chromosomes can produce a viable embryo. In humans, nondisjunction is most often associated with the 21st chromosome, producing a disease known as Down's syndrome (also referred to as trisomy 21). Sufferers of Down's syndrome suffer mild to severe mental retardation, short stocky body type, large tongue leading to speech difficulties, and (in those who survive into middle-age), a propensity to develop Alzheimer's Disease. Ninety-five percent of Down's cases result from nondisjunction of chromosome 21. Occasional cases result from a translocation in the chromosomes of one parent. Remember that a translocation occurs when one chromosome (or a fragment) is transferred to a non-homologous chromosome. The incidence of Down's Syndrome increases with age of the mother, although 25% of the cases result from an extra chromosome from the father. Click

    edit Chromosomes
    Humans have 46 chromosomes, arranged in 23 pairs (i.e. they are diploid ). 44 (22 pairs) of these chromosomes are autosomes , and 2 (1 pair) are sex chromosomes . Humans have an XY sex determination system , so that females have the sex chromosomes XX and the males XY. The Y chromosome is shorter than the X chromosome, so that males are hemizygous over this region. X-linked recessive genes are thus expressed more often in males. A Humans' gender is determined by the X and the Y chromosomes.
    edit Number of genes
    Estimates of the number of genes humans have has been possible since DNA sequencing was first introduced. Estimates however have varied wildly, though the present best guess is 20,000-25,000, estimates of up to 40,000 have been in the past.

    UCLA Human Genetics
    The Department of Human Genetics is the youngest basic science department in the Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA. When the Department was launched just prior to the sequencing of the human genome, it was clear that the practice of genetics research would be forever changed by the infusion of massive amounts of new data. Organizing and making sense of this genomic data is one of the greatest scientific challenges ever faced by mankind. The knowledge generated will ultimately transform medicine through patient-specific treatments and prevention strategies. The Department is dedicated to turning the mountains of raw genetic data into a detailed understanding of the molecular pathogenesis of human disease. The key to such understanding is the realization that genes not only code for specific proteins, but they also control the temporal development and maturation of every living organism through a complex web of interactions. Housed in the new Gonda Research Center, the Department serves as a focal point for genetics research on the UCLA campus, with state of the art facilities for gene expression, sequencing, genotyping, and bioinformatics. In addition to its research mission, the Department offers many exciting training opportunities for graduate students, postdoctoral fellows, and medical residents. Our faculty and staff welcome inquiries from prospective students. We also hope that a quick look at our web pages will give you a better idea of the Department's research and educational activities.

    Our Mission
    The Department of Human Genetics at the University of Pittsburgh's Graduate School of Public Health is dedicated to genetics research, teaching, and services. This department has three major research missions:
  • To develop and use genetic methods to investigate the causes and treatment of hereditary and acquired human illness.
  • To understand and explore the impact of genetics on public health, education, and disease prevention.
  • To appreciate the role of genetic diversity within human populations. Training Program
    The Department offers degrees at both the Masters and PhD level in Human Genetics, as well as a Masters of Science degree in Genetic Counseling, and a Masters of Public Health in Public Health Genetics. Students gain a strong background in all aspects of human genetics as a result of a broad-based curriculum and research opportunities in basic, applied, or clinical genetics. The program emphasizes the study of genetic mechanisms related to the transition from normal to disease states, and how genes and the environment interact to affect the distribution of health and disease in human populations.
    All applications for entry to the department must be made online. For additional admissions information, see our

    The Department of Human Genetics is the home within the Division of Biological Sciences for the study of basic principles of genetics and genomics as applied to human disease. We provide broad training in experimental genetics and genomics, statistical and population genetics, bioinformatics, and clinical genetics.  A common theme throughout our research is the application of basic genetic principles and strategies to the study of disease mechanism, disease susceptibility, and the genetic architecture of complex traits. Our faculty bridge between basic and clinical research and train students for careers in academia, industry, and medicine. T. Conrad Gilliam, Ph.D., Chairman.
