2Genetic EpidemiologyIntroductionIn this paper discussion regarding the chosen article has been made .In a way to complete thispaper the article which is chosen is Understanding Genetic Epidemiology: The PotentialBenefits and Challenges of Genetics for Improving Human Health.Genetic analysis is the study of genetic behavior of any individual. Study of genes involvesmutations; phenotype expressed and study of traits that are passed from one generation toanother. Genetic analysis is of two types such as conventional genetic analysis and traditionalanalysis. The study of genome accounting for specific phenotypes is known as conventionalgenetic analysis. Whereas the involvement of environmental factors in expression of traits areknown as traditional epidemiology. Genetic epidemiology is the combination of both effectswhich convey genetic effects. The factors include allelic variants in an individual and effectof environment. This project highlights the critical reviews on genetic epidemiology whichillustrates the necessity of its study in order to identify the future risks involved for a diseasesince genetic epidemiology finds the inherited factors that contributes the disease etiology.Purpose of the studyThe main purpose of the study was to analyze whether the genetic effects coincides withenvironmental effects in phenotype expression in occurrence of a disease (Seyerle & Avery,2013). There is numerous research works these days that work on improving the mechanismunderstanding of the disease. There are some therapeutic beneficiaries of epidemiology whichincludes cancer treatments, dosage regimens which are used for development in humanhealth.Major findingsInheritance pattern analysis: Initially when the concept was introduced for the first time, itwas hardly possible to measure the genotypes of individual therefore the genesis studied theinheritance pattern whether dominant or recessive or X- linked are same as the expressedphenotype in a family (Kim & Leventhal, 2015). For instance initial isolation of ovarian andbreast cancer reflected a strong etiology that is directly related to genes which constituted theautosomal mode of dominance.
