Abstract

Although much of male infertility is currently unexplained, it is likely that underlying defects in critical genes or entire gene pathways are responsible. Because powerful technologies exist to bypass severe male-factor infertility, improving the diagnosis of genetic infertility is important for the infertile couple, not only to explain the problem but also to inform them of conditions potentially transmissible to offspring.
