Spectacular advances have been made in molecular medicine during the last few decades including the mapping of human genome project which has revolutionized the understanding of basic molecular mechanisms involved in the etio-pathogenesis of most of the diseases. The completion of Human Genome Project disclosed about 90% of the human genome. This draft of human genome sequences has identified at least 38,000 genes and opened the door for genomic medicine and molecular studies. However, more investigation about the potential function and interaction of these genes was required to improve the clinical information in medicine1.
