Biotechnology plays an important role in the study of human genes. Techniques from molecular biology can be used to identify genes associated with diseases and the mutations involved in them. These techniques can be used for prenatal testing as well. A sample can be taken from the amniotic fluid or fetal tissue to obtain DNA which can be screened for mutations using recombinant DNA technology. This is especially useful in cases where the affected protein cannot be detected in the early stages because it is either produced in lower quantities or not expressed in fetal stages. This allows us to predict if the newborn will be affected by certain diseases that it may be susceptible to on the basis of family history.
