Genetics

Lymphedema Research Study
Lymphedema is swelling, usually of one or more arms and/or legs, resulting from either an inherited condition or acquired from damage to the lymphatic system after infection, injury, surgery, or radiation treatment from cancer. The University of Pittsburgh is studying the genetic basis of inherited lymphedema as well as genetic predispositions for acquired lymphedema. If you have developed lymphedema following cancer treatment or for any other reason, visit this site for information as well as links to lymphedema treatment centers and support groups.
The Online Mendelian Inheritance of Man
If you are looking for a genetic link to an illness, this is an incredible resource from Johns Hopkins University. Note that it is designed for genetic scientists. As they put it, "OMIM is a comprehensive, authoritative, and timely compendium of human genes and genetic phenotypes. The full-text, referenced overviews in OMIM contain information on all known mendelian disorders and over 12,000 genes. OMIM focuses on the relationship between phenotype and genotype. It is updated daily, and the entries contain copious links to other genetics resources." See this article on Hodgkin lymphoma for an example.
