A. Human somatic cells contain DNA that contains genetic information. Genes are part of the DNA sequence and are inherited from each parents. The chromosomes are composed of DNA. There are 22 pairs of male and female autosomes and sex chromosomes, X and Y chromosomes, XX for female, and XY for male.
A. By analyzing the DNA sequence extracted from the heel blood of newborn infants, we can detect rare genetic disease-related mutations that may be present from birth and provide genetic information to prevent disease in advance This is a personalized health program that prepares you with health care.
A. According to the World Health Organization, there are about 6,000 to 8,000 rare diseases and about 80% are due to genetic factors. Rare diseases are defined as diseases with a domestic incidence of 20,000 or less. A genetic disorder is a disease that inherits a certain disease-related mutation from its parent. The incidence of the disease in a mutated family is relatively higher than that of other families.
A. Generally, gene mutations are inherited from their parents, but acquired mutations can occur.
A. One embryo is split into two in the process of division, but the genes can be subtly different.. The occurrence of genetic mutations is influenced by various genetic modifiers and environmental factors. Thus, one of the twins is healthy, but the other may have a disease.
A. When mutation is found, diseases do not necessarily occur. Depending on the inheritance type and genotype (homozygous or heterozygous) of the mutation, it may be mutated or possibly disease-inducing.
A. Depending on the number of items checked for each service, it takes approximately 14 days to collect the results after receiving the blood.
A. Syntekabio provides services through the hospital with the anonymization process and does not directly ask for your personal information.
