Presented in the signature Flexibook format and showcasing almost 200 color plates concisely explained on facing pages, the book promotes easy visual learning and retention.
The fourth edition has been extensively revised and features additional topics including an illustrated outline of human evolution, genetic signaling pathways involved in genetic disorders, DNA repair systems, genomic disorders and genome-wide association studies, cancer genomes, genetic disorders of fibroblast growth factors receptors, epigenetic changes in certain disorders, ciliopathies, neurocristopathies, and other emerging topics. This text is ideal for students, clinicians, and scientists interested in keeping current in this fast-moving area.
From the preface:
“The emphasis is on the intersection of theoretical foundations and practical applications, in particular as relevant to human and medical genetics. Genetic diseases are selected as examples representing a genetic principle, but without the many details required in practice.” -- Eberhard Passarge
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
