The fourth edition of this classical reference book can once again be relied upon to present a cohesive and up-to-date exposition of all aspects of human and medical genetics. Human genetics has become one of the main basic sciences in medicine, and molecular genetics is increasingly becoming a major part of this field. This new edition integrates a wealth of new information - mainly describing the influence of the "molecular revolution" - including the principles of epigenetic processes which together create the phenotype of a human being. Other revisions are an improved layout, sub-division into a larger number of chapters, as well as two-colour print throughout for ease of reference, and many of the figures are now in full colour. For graduates and those already working in medical genetics.

This fourth edition of the best-selling textbook, HumanGenetics and Genomics, clearly explains the key principlesneeded by medical and health sciences students, from the basis ofmolecular genetics, to clinical applications used in the treatmentof both rare and common conditions. A newly expanded Part 1, Basic Principles of Human Genetics,focuses on introducing the reader to key concepts such as Mendelianprinciples, DNA replication and gene expression. Part 2,Genetics and Genomics in Medical Practice, uses case scenarios tohelp you engage with current genetic practice. Now featuring full-color diagrams, Human Genetics andGenomics has been rigorously updated to reflect today’sgenetics teaching, and includes updated discussion of genetic riskassessment, “single gene” disorders andtherapeutics. Key learning features include: Clinical snapshots to help relate science to practice ‘Hot topics’ boxes that focus on the latestdevelopments in testing, assessment and treatment ‘Ethical issues’ boxes to prompt further thoughtand discussion on the implications of genetic developments ‘Sources of information’ boxes to assist with thepracticalities of clinical research and information provision Self-assessment review questions in each chapter Accompanied by the Wiley E-Text digital edition (includedin the price of the book), Human Genetics and Genomics isalso fully supported by a suite of online resources at ahref="http://www.korfgenetics.com/"www.korfgenetics.com/a,including: Factsheets on 100 genetic disorders, ideal for study and exampreparation Interactive Multiple Choice Questions (MCQs) with feedback onall answers Links to online resources for further study Figures from the book available as PowerPoint slides, ideal forteaching purposes The perfect companion to the genetics component of bothproblem-based learning and integrated medical courses, HumanGenetics and Genomics presents the ideal balance between thebio-molecular basis of genetics and clinical cases, and provides aninvaluable overview for anyone wishing to engage with thisfast-moving discipline.

Human genetics has blossomed from an obscure biological science and explanation for rare disorders to a field that is profoundly altering health care for everyone. This thoroughly updated new edition of Human Genetics: The Basics provides a concise background of gene structure and function through the lens of real examples, from families living with inherited diseases to population-wide efforts in which millions of average people are learning about their genetic selves. The book raises compelling issues concerning: • The role of genes in maintaining health and explaining sickness • Genetic testing, gene therapy, and genome editing • The common ancestry of all humanity and how we are affecting our future. Written in an engaging, narrative manner, this concise introduction is an ideal starting point for anyone who wants to know more about genes, DNA, genomes, and the genetic ties that bind us all.
