This book helps cement this key subject in the minds of all students. The book 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.
This edition incorporates the latest advances in molecular diagnostics, the Human Genome Project, and much more. More than 240 dynamic illustrations and high-quality photos help you grasp complex concepts more easily. In addition to the book, you will also receive STUDENT CONSULT, enabling you to access the complete contents of the book online, anywhere you go!
