Course intended for
Andrologists, Embryologists, Specialists in Reproductive Medicine, Researchers, Gynecologists, Physicians, Resident Gynecologists and Graduates and Students in Biomedical Sciences (Biology, Medicine, Veterinary, Biochemistry, Pharmacy, etc.).
This chapter defines the different types of chromosome abnormalities and genetic diseases, as well as their incidence and origin. It focuses on genetic aspects that have implications on human fertility and the reproductive options in couples who carry genetic diseases and with a risk of chromosome abnormalities.
In the end, it introduces genomics and systems medicine in the field of assisted reproduction.
