Discussion on Fragile X with Dr. Jonathan Picker 12th Apr 2014 KEM Hospital, Mumbai
An explanation of fragile X and it's relevance at a patient, family and population level was reviewed. This review included when and how to test as well as current physical, educational and psychological treatments. The implications on fertility and late onset neurological disease in carrier family members was discussed as were current turneries and research trials directly targeting the abnormal biochemistry of the disorder.
Talk on Genetics in Clinical Practice by Dr. Jonathan Picker 28 Nov 2013 IIT Bombay
With the realisation of the human genome project, there has been a paradigm shift in thinking. No longer are we focused on decoding the genome but rather on using it. Superficially, whole genome sequencing for everybody would seem to be the goal but reading the sequence is not the same as understanding it. Pitfalls in interpretation suggest a more refined approach is needed.
