Genetics and Arrhythmias: Beyond Mendel's Peas
Description
The field of genetics and arrhythmias is expanding. There is increasing overlap between basic science and clinical management. Increasingly the clinician is asked to understand complex genetics and this session will provide a basis for this.

Experts in basic science describe how uncommon genetic and genomic issues contribute to disease and how subtle genetic changes contribute to disease.
