Cardiovascular disease is the commonest cause of death
in the Western world, and congenital heart disease
affects almost 1% of liveborn infants. Both diseases have
substantial genetic components. The identification of
specific genetic variations that underpin cardiovascular
disease is providing new opportunities for diagnostic
testing, pharmacogenetics, and drug development. In
this review we describe genes that are known to have an
important impact on the development of cardiovascular
disease and discuss how their identification may improve
