Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Encyclopedia of Human Genetics and Disease has some qualities that could recommend it for a less specialized audience that would appreciate placement of the genetics topics in a broader context and could benefit from the genetics primers and special topic overviews." - Reference Reviews

"This is an excellent resource for school, public, and consumer health libraries, offering a very accessible presentation of complex material." - Booklist

"This resource is a quick guide that will be of particular use for high school students beginning a research paper, but may also be useful to early undergraduates looking for basic information on a particular genetic disease. . . . The entries will not overwhelm a student new to the topic, but they also provide additional resources as a gateway to more in-depth information if a student wishes to go further." - ARBA
