Abstract

The goal of this resource is to present steps in the pathways of exploration to connect genotype to phenotype and to consider how alterations in genomes impact disease. Topics reviewed include investigations in genome architecture, gene structure, gene regulation epigenetic modifications and function of organelles including mitochondria, and the endosome lysosome system. New insights into neurodevelopment and neurobehavioral disorders gained through functional genomic research are presented and aspects of genomic studies in complex common diseases are reviewed.
