Tobias, Edward S. et al.



332 pages




Tobias (medical genetics, U. of Glasgow, Scotland) et al. provide students, teachers, clinicians, counselors, and scientists with information on the basic principles of medical genetics, and how to apply this knowledge in clinical contexts such as genetic assessment; identifying individuals with a family history of cancer, other disorders, and congenital malformations; and screening. Using a reorganized structure, this edition has been updated to include the latest information on the Human Genome Project, identification of new classes of RNA molecules, new molecular genetic and chromosome analysis techniques, further development of preimplantation genetic diagnosis, improved methods for antenatal and neonatal screening, self-assessment questions, and case study scenarios. It also has a new section on how to choose and use the best online genetic databases, as well as a companion website with updated information and links, figures from the book in PowerPoint format, and additional self-test questions.
