1 By Dr. Sawsan Shurrab The history of genetics in relation to medicine is one of breathtaking discovery from which patients and families already benefit hugely but in today's world success will be measured by continuing progress in the treatment and prevention of disease. Developments in genetics during the twentieth century have been truly spectacular. In 1900 Mendel's principles were awaiting rediscovery,chromosomes were barely visible, and the science of molecular genetics did not exist.
