Polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS), also known by the name Stein-Leventhal syndrome, is a hormonal problem that causes women to have a variety of symptoms. It should be noted that most women with the condition have a number of small cysts in the ovaries. However, women may have cysts in the ovaries for a number of reasons, and it is the characteristic constellation of symptoms, rather than the presence of the cysts themselves, that is important in establishing the diagnosis of PCOS. PCOS occurs in 5% to 10% of women and is the most common cause of infertility in women. Gene expression analysis was carried out using ACUA. Phylogenic analysis of these highly expressed genes viewed through Phylodendron and Phylogibbs.
