-'''Reprogenetics''' is a term referring to the merging of [[reproductive technology|reproductive]] and [[human genetic engineering|genetic]] technologies expected to happen in the near future as techniques like [[germinal choice technology]] become more available and more powerful. The term was coined by [[Lee M. Silver]], a professor of [[molecular biology]] at [[Princeton University]], in his 1997 book ''[[Remaking Eden]]''.+'''Assisted reproductive technology''' ('''ART''') is the technology used to achieve [[pregnancy]] in procedures such as [[fertility medication]], [[in vitro fertilization]] and [[surrogacy]]. It is [[reproductive technology]] used primarily for [[infertility]] treatments, and is also known as '''fertility treatment.''' It mainly belongs to the field of [[reproductive endocrinology and infertility]], and may also include [[intracytoplasmic sperm injection]] (ICSI) and [[cryopreservation]]. Some forms of ART are also used with regard to fertile couples for genetic reasons ([[preimplantation genetic diagnosis]]). ART is also used for couples who are discordant for certain communicable diseases; for example, [[HIV/AIDS|HIV]] to reduce the risk of infection when a pregnancy is desired.

Assisted reproductive technology (ART) is the technology used to achieve pregnancy in procedures such as fertility medication, in vitro fertilization and surrogacy. It is reproductive technology used primarily for infertility treatments, and is also known as fertility treatment. It mainly belongs to the field of reproductive endocrinology and infertility, and may also include intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI) and cryopreservation. Some forms of ART are also used with regard to fertile couples for genetic reasons (preimplantation genetic diagnosis). ART is also used for couples who are discordant for certain communicable diseases; for example, HIV to reduce the risk of infection when a pregnancy is desired.
