Indications for Growth and Development

Indications For Growth and Development Genetics

Genes strongly influence metabolism in newborns, development of neonate, early childhood milestones, cognitive development in children, and pubertal changes in young adults. Variants or mutations on genes effect different organ systems and may result in syndromic genetic conditions with variable range of severity.
