Description

This is the first of three sessions that consider interpreting family histories and identifying patients with, or at risk of, a genetic condition. Here we cover autosomal single gene conditions.

Objectives

By the end of this session you will be able to:
• Recognise autosomal dominant and autosomal recessive patterns of inheritance
• Interpret a family history/family tree
• Describe how genetic probability is estimated for autosomal dominant and recessive conditions
• Explain that the symptoms and signs of genetic conditions vary, especially in autosomal dominant conditions (variable expression and penetrance)
