Abstract

The ultimate goal of the Human Genome Project is the determination of the molecular sequence of the entire human chromosomal complement. Realization of this goal will include characterization of all the genes that cause or predispose to disease, which will most certainly lead to the development of powerful new tools for diagnosis, prevention, and treatment in all medical fields, including orthopaedics. The authors review the fundamentals of human genetics and gene mapping, summarize the progress of the Human Genome Project thus far, and discuss the implications of this research as it relates to the treatment of musculoskeletal diseases.
