Product description

Review

“Essential Medical Genetics is the perfect resource for a course on medical genetics, and is now accompanied by a regularly updated website and the FREE enhanced Wiley Desktop Edition (upon purchase of the book) .”  (MedReport, 9 October 2012)

“I have watched this textbook from its first inception and was disappointed that there was no new edition for so many years. Having waited, the result now is excellent and it has overcome my preference for Emery′s Elements as a basic human genetics text.” Emeritus Professor in Clinical Genetics

"I find the reference to electronic resources particularly useful, especially for people who approach clinical genetics for the first time and are not familiar with these tools." Dr Sixto García–Miñaúr, Imperial College London, and Hospital Universitario La Paz, Madrid, Spain

Reviews of the previous edition
"This book is an easy to read, well illustrated introduction to medical genetics. It deals nicely with all the classical aspects of the subject..." Black Bag, Medical Students′ Society of Bristol University

"...a justifiably popular introductory text." The British Medical Journal

From the Back Cover

Essential Medical Genetics provides students, clinicians, counsellors and scientists with the up–to–date information they need regarding the basic principles underlying medical genetics. It also provides guidance on how to apply current knowledge in clinical contexts, covering a wide variety of topics: from genome structure and function to mutations, screening and risk assessment for inherited disorders.

This sixth edition has been substantially updated to include, for instance, the latest information on the Human Genome Project as well as several new molecular genetic and chromosome analysis techniques. In full colour throughout, it includes a number of brand new features, including: a large number of self–assessment questions; ‘Essentials’ chapter summaries; further reading suggestions; and case study scenarios introducing clinical situations. An invaluable new section gives illustrated practical advice regarding how to choose the best available online genetic databases and also, importantly, how to most easily and most efficiently use them, for a wide range of purposes.

Essential Medical Genetics is the perfect resource for a course on medical genetics, and is now accompanied by a regularly updated website and the FREE enhanced Wiley Desktop Edition (upon purchase of the book).

The companion website at www.wiley.com/go/tobias features figures from the book in PowerPoint format and a link to the authors′ website with regularly updated links to genetic databases and additional self–test questions.
