Abstract

Considerable advances in the genetic analysis and diagnosis of muscular diseases made during the past years that may allow detailed clinical understanding, specific diagnosis, hope for gene therapy, and better genetic counseling of the disease. The scientific research progress in the human genetics, however, raised social and ethical issues. This would largely not due to the genetic technology but with its proper use. In this introductory note, I am going to describe the recent advances and future prospects of genetic aspects of the muscular disease.
