Product Description

Review

"The word 'Genetics' makes most students' minds fill with dreaded thoughts of Mendel's peas and Darwin's beard but the reality is that it is now, more than ever, one of the most important subjects in medicine along with the likes of anatomy and physiology. This book helps cement this key subject in the minds of all students. It is written in a clear and approachable manner, terminology is explained and diagrams are used to emphasises and clarify. The authors have structured this well, beginning with the very basic concepts of genetics and inheritance then building on to the more clinical topics such as diseases resulting from mutations. Each chapter ends with a list of questions which test what the student has learnt whilst reading a particular chapter. These questions are also a very good revision tool. If you want to learn genetics buy this book." -- Medical Student, Cardiff University, UK

"The bolded words in the text are of excellent help to a student. These make sure that you know their meaning before moving on...very informative and reader-friendly for medical students!" -- Medical Student, University of Bergen, Norway

Format: Paperback
This book is very good for genetics and understanding some important concepts in Medical Genetics. But for some reason it doesn't cover Immunological genetics, and the chapter on developmental genetics wasn't very good.

Immunogenetics was covered in quite a bit of detail at my Med School in Prague, so i had to get another book called Principles of Genetics to cover that.

Molecular genetics, things like DNA replication and translation and transcription isn't really covered in here, but this book covers mostly the pathological aspect of genetics and gives reference to a lot of diseases. So i would recommend definitely using this book with another reference book.

I wasn't really expecting such a good quality for an used item. Combined with the scientific value I can say it was a very good choice.

4.0 out of 5 stars Comprehensive 27 Aug. 2007
By O'Henry - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This is a quite comprehensive and general overview of medical genetics, with perhaps more focus on scientific research than clinical practice, although both are well represented.

However, this is a rapidly changing field of research, and some of the newest techniques (such as whole genome association studies) and most informative websites (such as SNPedia) that are insufficiently addressed in this edition will presumably get caught only in the (hopefully frequent) future editions.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Great Study Guide for the ABMG Exam!!! 1 April 2008
By anonymous - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This is a great study guide for the American Board of Medical Genetics exam. It covers cytogenetics and molecular genetics in depth, and also discusses other important concepts such as Hardy-Weinberg Equilibrium, Population Genetics, Genomics, and single gene and complex inheritance.
I have not used the on-line access feature yet, but I have noticed a lot of improvements from the previous printed edition, including reorganized chapters, new/updated end-of-chapter questions, new statistics based on a more updated human gene count/information, and new sections on array comparative genomic hybridization. Overall, it would be essential to own this book if you're studying for the ABMG board exam, although I would also recommend supplementing your studies with other resouces to be more comprehensively prepared.

4.0 out of 5 stars More like genetics of disease then clinical medicine 20 Dec. 2009
By ninjasuperstar - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is one of those comprehensive texts that can be difficult to wade through at times, but at least the writing is decent even if there is a glut of information. The focus is on the genetic mechanisms of disease and technologies used to detect and augment genetic information. For me, the book serves as a good review and extension of first-year biology, as well as an introduction to where DNA technology came, where it is, and where it might be going.

Contents:
Introduction
The Human Genome and the Chromosomal Basis of Heredity
The Human Genome: Gene Structure and Function

5.0 out of 5 stars I love this book 1 Oct. 2014
By Alyssa - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I love this book. I needed it for a class but am keeping it just because it explains things so well and it's quite fun to read just on its own, especially just about different diseases. Would highly recommend it!
