Nalband mutation

In The Hindu Interpretation of a malady: how scientists zeroed on one family's rare and crippling disease
From the summary of an earlier research by Suvrat Kher"3) The findings indicate that there is a larger amount of genetic variation between Indian groups than there is between say European groups.

This has important medical value as recessive diseases may correlate with ethnic groups."
