Your genome is your own unique set of genetic instructions, which is stored in each cell of your body on a set of 23 pairs of chromosomes. THere are abot three billion individual building blocks that make up your chromosomes. On each chromosome are collections of these building blocks, or base pairs, that are called genes. There are about 23,000 genes across your chromosomes.
Not only do your genes contain the information that gives you brown eyes or curly hair – your genes also influence your health, your susceptibility to disease, and even how yu might respond to some environmental exposures or medications.
Researches use genotyping to look for very small differences in a person’s genes, differences that may be associated with health or disease, such as increasing or decreasing the chances of getting a particular disease or how a person responds to a particular medication. By genotyping DNA samples from a large number of people from diverse populations with a variety of health conditions, and comparing what they find, scientists can learn which genetic factors may contribute to health and disease, and use this information in additional research to improve the health and health care of future generations.
