Track 03: Genetic Diseases
Genetic Disorder may be caused as result of new mutation or changes that occur in DNA. It is also a hereditary diseases  that is caused from parents gene. Mostly it caused due to the abnormalities in the genome. Genetic disorders are classified into different types depending up on single gene or multiple genes. Around 4000 diseases are categorized as single gene defect. Some of the multifactorial  disorders include heart diseases and diabetes. Some of the common diseases are asthma, Diabetes, Hypertension and Obesity.

Thalassemia is characterized as an abnormal hemoglobin producing condition. It is a type of inherited blood disorders. Symptoms are mild to severe anemia due to low red blood cells count. Anemia can make one feel tired and have pale skin. Bone problems, an enlarged spleen, yellowish skin, dark urine, and among children slow growth are other related symptoms of Thalassemia.

There are two main types in thalassemia, alpha thalassemia and beta thalassemia. Diagnosis is done by blood tests including a complete blood count, special haemoglobin tests, and genetic tests. Diagnosis can also be done before birth by prenatal testing.

Management of thalassemia
Track 05:  Sickle cell Anaemia
Sickle-cell disease (SCD) is a group of blood disorders typically inherited from an individual’s parents. Amongst all, the most common type is known as sickle-cell anaemia (SCA). An abnormality in the oxygen-carrying protein haemoglobin (haemoglobin S) found in red blood cells is seen in SCD. This mainly leads to a rigid, sickle-like shape under certain circumstances. Sickel cell disease Problems typically begin around 5 to 6 months of age. Sickle-cell disease caused due to when inheritance two abnormal copies of the haemoglobin gene, one from each parent. This gene present in chromosome 11. Various subtypes exist, depending on the exact mutation in each haemoglobin gene. An attack can get started by temperature changes, stress, dehydration, and high altitude.

Human evolutionary genetics explain how one human genome will differ from another human genome, from where the evolutionary past arrived that gave rise to it, and also its the current effects. This disparity between the genomes has anthropological, historical, medical and forensic implication and applications. Genetic data can provide important insight into human evolution. It helps one to understand the differences in the human genome and learn about how evolution has affects the development of the genome and acquired diversity.

Track 09: Genome editing
It is type of genetic engineering which involves addition , deletion and insertion  or modification of genome in a organism.  The Common thing in this research is to modify DNA sequence  and  observe the changes on the organism. This method is known as reverse genetics where  it is vice versa to forward genetics in which the phenotype  will be observed  first and genetics of the organism will be studied later.

Track 10: Cancer genetics
Cancer genetics studies about the heritable gene variants in humans and other animals that causes the change in risk of tumour or haematological malignancy.  An Individual cancer risk varies and is influenced by familial and sporadic oncogene or tumour suppressor gene mutations as well as rare and common constitutional variants present in the population. For many years, cancer genetics has mainly focused on mutational events which have their own primary effect within the cancer cell.

Track 11: Epigenetics
Epigenetics is a biological mechanism exhibiting functionally relevant changes to the genome that does not involve changes in the DNA sequences. Epigenetics controls the gene expression through the action of repressor protein that attaches to silencer regions of the DNA, switching between turn on and off of a gene, leading to alteration in the chromosomal regions.

Pharmacogenomics is the study dealing with the response of an individual with respect to their genome to the administered drugs. As the name suggests it is the combination of two different fields that is pharmacology and genomics. Pharmacogenomics is often used interchangeably with pharmacogenetics. Adverse drug reactions are a significant cause of hospitalizations and deaths in many countries.

Track 14: Immunogenetics

Immunogenetics is under a division of medical genetics that exploits the relationship between the genetics and immune system. Type 1 diabetes is an Autoimmune disease, it has complex genetic traits which result due to defects in the immune system. New target genes for therapeutic approaches are identified by Identification of genes defining the immune defects. Alternatively, by making use of genetic variation the immunological pathway leading to disease is defined. It highlights the emerging technical and various conceptual breakthroughs that pitch for mechanisms of anti-donor responses.

Track 15:  Stem cell therapy
Use of Stem cells for the treatment and prevention of diseased condition is categorized under stem cell therapy. Bone marrow transplant is found to be most widely used among various stem-cell therapies. Some stem cell therapies were acquired by using umbilical cord blood. Stem-cell therapy has turned into a controversial trailing to the developments where scientists are able to isolate and culture embryonic stem cells, to create stem cells using somatic cell nuclear transfer and their use of techniques to create induced pluripotent stem cells. These controversies often comprehend abortion politics and to human cloning. Stem cell therapy has been exploited for treatments of neurodegenerative diseases and conditions such as diabetes and heart disease.

Track 16:  Gene Mutation
A gene mutation happens due to permanent alteration in the DNA sequence that makes up a gene, in a way that the sequence differs from what is found in most of the normal individual. Mutations range in size; they can affect anywhere from a single DNA base pair to a large segment of a chromosome, one including multiple genes. It can be classified in two major ways that is hereditary mutations and acquired mutation.
