Mitochondrial Medicine Resources

Books

"Written by the world’s foremost mitochondrial researchers, the book comprehensively presents the state-of-the-art in mitochondrial medicine, making it of interest to a wide variety of specialists, including neurologists, geneticists, internists and biologists."

Dr. Marni Falk and a team of international experts have created a resource to provide an all-in-one, readily accessible, and easy-to-use at point of care reference on mitochondrial disease from a gene-based perspective. In this book, clinicians and researchers will find a complete overview of mitochondrial disease genes relevant across all specialties, cataloging and building context around clinical features and the genetic basis of each condition.


General Resources

Mitochondria are the batteries that produce more than 90 percent of your body's energy. Learn more facts about mitochondria and mitochondrial disorder.

This resource from the Roberts Individualized Genetics Center explains how people with mitochondrial disease carry a mutation in a gene that affects the way their mitochondria work.

This resource from the Roberts Individualized Genetics Center provides a visual overview about basic genetics and explains some of genetic test technologies available.
