Research Interests Publications Conferences Research Projects

Human Genetics group:

Hereditary limb defects: We are conducting clinical and molecular studies on limb anomalies in order to understand their nature and to classify the types prevalent in our population. Molecular typing and classification would be helpful in genetic counseling and suggesting management and therapeutic alternatives. 

Genetic epidemiology of congenital and hereditary defects: We intend to explore the spectrum of congenital anomalies in the Pakistani population. Community control and intervention of congenital anomalies is possible by understanding their distribution, prevalence and clinical and molecular bases in various ethnic and linguistic isolates of Pakistan. This research is also vital in estimating the genetic burden pertaining to these disorders on our society.

Community genetics and consanguinity: The unique socio-cultural setup of Pakistani society favours close and consanguineous marriages. We intend to examine the dynamics of consanguinity and inbreeding coefficient (F) in various populations of Pakistan, and also its impact on the prevalence of congenital anomalies.

We are open for collaborations on studies of common interest. If there is any idea, please discuss: malik@qau.edu.pk, malik00pk@yahoo.com
