The sardinians’ dna: a key to explaining human illness

New genetic variability characterisation technologies have improved our understanding of the way in which genes and their protein products function in both good health and illness. They have also supplied a powerful tool with which to reconstruct humanity’s prehistoric events, supplying information on population movements and adaptation to different environments. Certain examples will show how specific distinctively Sardinian genetic characteristics have led to better understanding of the genetic and functional bases of complex diseases like auto-immune diseases and the evolutional history of Sardinia and the Europeans.
