Purpose The aim of this study was to assess knowledge, self-rated confidence, and perceived relevance of genetics in the clinical practice of audiologists and speech-language pathologists (SLPs) toward a better understanding of the need for genetics education, given that genetics plays a growing role in the diagnosis of hearing impairment and communication disorders. Method A survey consisting of 8 demographic items and 16 content questions was returned by 233 audiologists and 283 SLPs. Knowledge of applied...
Borrowing both from population genetics and phylogenetics, the field of population genomics emerged as full genomes of several closely related species were available. Providing we can properly model sequence evolution within populations undergoing speciation events, this resource enables us to estimate key population genetics parameters such as ancestral population sizes and split times. Furthermore we can enhance our understanding of the recombination process and investigate various selective forces. With ...

Through his own research contributions on the modelling and genetic analysis of quantitative traits and through his former students and postdocs, Robin Thompson has indirectly left a major legacy in human genetics. In this short note, we highlight examples of the long-lasting relevance and impact of Robin's work in human genetics. A lone early study of marker-assisted selection developed many of the tools and approaches later exploited (often after reinvention) by the human genetics community in GWAS studie...
As our growing knowledge of genetics and genomics continues to inform, change, and customize health care, an understanding of genetics and genomics is now central to up-to-date and proficient nursing practice. There is a growing need for relevant nursing educational programs that aid practicing nurses in securing genetics/genomics knowledge and an understanding of gene therapy. This article describes a day-long, evidence-based, hands-on genetics learning program developed specifically for practicing nurses ...
Genetics has been suggested as an explanation for the etiology of malocclusions, although some questions, due to the perception that genetic inheritance is tied to a monogenic or Mendelian form of inheritance.
Putting together the reports in this issue that come from a representation of the different countries in Asia presents an opportunity to share the unique story of the Asia Pacific Society of Human Genetics (APSHG), which has provided the authors of many of these articles. This paper, authored by the Past Presidents of the Society, shares glimpses of how medical genetics activities were first organized in the Asia Pacific region and provides interesting corollaries on how under-developed and developing count...
Special issue on canine genetics: animal models for human disease and gene therapies, new discoveries for canine inherited diseases, and standards and guidelines for clinical genetic testing for domestic dogs.
The heritability of several psychiatric disorders is high, and specific at-risk variants have been identified. Therefore, genetic counseling and genetic testing can be prescribed to some psychiatric patients, but these services are not standardized for most of the population. The aims of the study were to gather opinions from mental health professionals and users regarding (a) the genetics of psychiatric disorders and (b) the usefulness of a genetic counseling unit in psychiatry.
