Mutation-genetic disease paradigm: a bewitching picture without a frame

The world of human genetics is wonderfully complex. Next-generation sequencing technologies implemented in genetic testing for rare disorders are impressive tools for searching throughout the whole human genome and singling out mutations causing mendelian diseases. However, although mendelian inheritance may look simple, its mechanisms is usually tangled in a wide range of biological phenomena that

Small and large mutations: how do we sail among different mutation sizes?

How large can a mutation be? Genetic variations in the human genome can differ very much in size. Starting from the smallest mutations possible, the SNV (single nucleotide variation), up to the deletion of an entire chromosome, you can find mutations of every size in the middle! The vast majority of pathogenic mutations are SNVs
