Authors: Sara L. Torres and Marta S. Marin 
Book Description:
A genetic predisposition is a genetic effect which influences the phenotype of an organism but which can be modified by the environmental conditions. Genetic testing is able to identify individuals who are genetically predisposed to certain health problems such as cancer or other life altering diseases. This new book discusses the determination of the genetic basis of health problems that will help the precise mechanisms of health problem such as a disease or physical disorder.
