MORE ABOUT THIS BOOK

Main description:



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.
