Medical Genetics at a Glance Summary

Medical Genetics at a Glance by Dorian J. Pritchard

First Prize in the Medicine category at the British Medical Association Book Awards 2008 The complex field of medical genetics is simplified in Medical Genetics at a Glance , with important scientific principles and clinical material broken into bite-sized chapters. This popular introduction and revision aid covers the core scientific principles relevant to an understanding of medical genetics and the clinical applications of this knowledge by discussing common genetic anomalies and their significance in clinical practice. This edition contains increased clinical relevance and features: Consideration of the latest practical and philosophical aspects of medical genetics Full-colour illustrations to increase visual appeal Self-assessment cases to make revision more rewarding and illustrate clinical applications of genetics A popular and well structured approach to the molecular diagnostic techniques of modern genetics An international author team based in the UK and USA Medical Genetics at a Glance is an ideal introduction or concise, highly visual revision aid to genetics for medical students in the early years of their course, and for other students of molecular biology, genetics and genetic counselling.

Medical Genetics at a Glance Reviews

"This book provides an extremely extensive introduction to the complexities of modern molecular and clinical genetics ... This is a valuable addition to the teaching literature." ( BMA Medical Book Competition - Programme and Award Winners , September 2008)
