Overview

For decades, Emeryand Rimoin’s Principles and Practice of Medical Genetics has provided the ultimate source for practicing clinicians to learn how the study of genetics can be integrated into practice.Developed in parallel to the sixth edition, and featuring 174 original contributions from the many authors of the full set, this one volume work expertly condenses and synthesizes the most clinically relevant content, for convenient desk reference.

Helping to bridge the gap between high-level molecular genetics and individual application, it follows the multi-volume set inencompassing scientific fundamentals, full spectrum discussion of major inherited disorders, and actionable therapies. Clinically oriented information is supported byconcisedescriptions of theprinciples of genetics, research approaches, and analytics to embrace the evolving population of students, researchers, and practitioners who are integrating their work to provide advanced diagnosis, prevention and treatment of human disease.

From the Publisher

"…this is a masterful summary of essential information for the practice of clinical genetics...From nurse practitioners to supervising physicians, from early trainees to senior fellows, this is a must-have tool…Sadly, David Rimoin died after a brief illness after finalizing this amazing book. The medical genetics community will miss him greatly. There are no books that match the quality of this one."Rating: 5 Stars--Doody.com, March 7, 2014 "The late Rimoin, Pyeritz, and Korf present 163 brief chapters that summarize chapters from Emery and Rimoin's Principles and Practice of Medical Genetics, for students, researchers, and practitioners…This edition has new chapters and includes common disorders not traditionally viewed as genetic."--Reference and Research Book News, August 2013

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Luis F. Escobar, MD, MS (St. Vincent Hospital and Health Care Center)
Description: Based on Emery and Rimoin's Principles and Practice of Medical Genetics, 5th edition, Rimoin et al. (Elsevier, 2007), this is a masterful summary of essential information for the practice of clinical genetics.
Purpose: The purpose is to summarize the vast knowledge base of medical genetics and highlight essential information for practice. In an era when scientific knowledge is complex and vast, works like this are a breath of fresh air for medical geneticists. The editors and contributors have met their objectives.
Audience: The simplicity of the language and the format makes this book appropriate for all individuals involved in the practice of medical genetics. From nurse practitioners to supervising physicians, from early trainees to senior fellows, this is a must-have tool. The material in this book can benefit not only genetics subspecialists, but also general practitioners in pediatrics, internal medicine, and public health.
Features: The book covers all aspects of medical genetics, addressing unique subjects such as twins and twinning, fetal loss, transplantation genetics, genetic concepts in electrophysiology, and more. The book comes with access to an online version, which makes it available in all settings. Artwork is used well in sections that benefit from additional tools to transmit the concepts.
Assessment: Sadly, David Rimoin died after a brief illness after finalizing this amazing book. The medical genetics community will miss him greatly. There are no books that match the quality of this one.
