From reviews of previous editions: "A remarkable achievement
...concise but informative...No geneticist or physician interested
in genetic diseases should be without a copy..." -- American
Journal of Medical Genetics Ever since the international Human
Genome Project achieved its extraordinary goal of sequencing and
mapping the entire human genome-with far-reaching implications for
understanding the causes and diagnosis of human genetic
disorders-progress in the field has been rapid. In the fourth
edition of the bestselling Color Atlas of Genetics, readers will
get a full overview of the field today, with an emphasis on the
interface between fundamental principles and practical applications
in medicine. The book utilizes the signature Flexibook format
designed for easy visual learning and retention, and is invaluable
for students, clinicians, and scientists interested in keeping
current in this fast-moving area. New topics in the fully revised
fourth edition of this highly praised atlas: * Genetic signaling
pathways involved in genetic disorders* DNA repair systems* Genomic
disorders and genome-wide association studies* Cancer genomes*
Ciliopathies, neurocristopathies, and other groups of causally
related disorders* Epigenetic changes in certain disorders*
Illustrated outline of human evolution With almost 200 stunning
color plates concisely explained on facing pages, and including
useful tables of data, a glossary of terms, key references, and
online resources, this book makes every concept clear and
accessible. It is an excellent introduction to genetics and basic
genomics for students of medicine and biology, as well as an ideal
teaching aid and refresher for investigators in any field of
medicine or science.
