The recent and rapid advances in human genetics and the human genome project have allowed us to ask questions that we couldn’t even contemplate ten years ago.  In the past, we could only characterize the features that individuals with chromosome abnormalities had.  However, now we are trying to understand how missing or duplicated genes contribute to those features.  This is a critical step in developing interventions and therapies for these individuals.
