Human Genetics and Genomics Summary


Human Genetics and Genomics: A Problem-Based Approach by Bruce R. Korf

Human Genetics and Genomics, Third Edition, is the new rendition of the classic textbook Human Genetics: A Problem-Based Approach. Thoroughly updated and restructured, this brand new edition uses both a classic didactic approach to teach basic genetic concepts and a problem-based approach to demonstrate the clinical applications of genetics in medical practice. By combining both these approaches, Human Genetics and Genomics is suitable both as a textbook for genetics courses, and as a bridge into the clinical environment. The third edition features greater emphasis on cutting edge technologies and the latest genetic issues, and a vast array of new pedagogy, such as: * Clinical snapshots covering major genetic disorders * Ethical Implications boxes discussing related ethical issues * Key summary points at the beginning of each chapter and Q&As at the end of each chapter for self-assessment * Hot topics covering new and emerging areas in genetics * Recommended reading for each chapter * A companion website at www.blackwellpublishing.com/korfgenetics

A very thorough and well writtern text book which is a must for students and doctors who need better understanding of genetics." Medical Student, Manchester University "Genetics is one of the fastest developing areas of medicine and therefore a vital part of any medical student's understanding.
