Emery and Rimoin's essential medical genetics. (online access included)
Ed. by David L. Rimoin, Reed E. Pyeritz, and Bruce R. Korf.
The late Rimoin (genetics, Cedars-Sinai Medical Center), Pyeritz, and Korf present 163 brief chapters that summarize chapters from Emery and Rimoin's Principles and Practice of Medical Genetics, for students, researchers, and practitioners. Geneticists and other medical specialists from the US, Europe, Canada, Israel, Japan, Lebanon, and Australia address basic principles, such as genomics and proteomics, epigenetics, the chromosomal basis of inheritance, the history of medical genetics, population genetics, the pathogenetics of disease, human developmental genetics, twins, the molecular biology of cancer, and pharmacogenetics and pharmacogenomics; general principles like genetic evaluation, counseling, diagnostic molecular genetics, screening, gene therapy, and ethical, social, and legal issues; and applications to specific clinical problems and disorders, including chromosomal disorders, disorders of various body systems, mental and behavioral disorders, and deafness. This edition has new chapters and includes common disorders not traditionally viewed as genetic. Online access to the full text, including complete chapters, is included.
