ABSTRACT


India, with a population of 1.21 billion, having diverse origins is the second most populous country in the world. Clinical genetics/medical genetics, the “latest” branch is still in its infancy stage as compared to other developed countries. For the last 10 years, there has been an increase in awareness, but it still remains a subject of less interest for majority of the professionals working in healthcare.
