Overview

Human Genetics and Genomics, Third Edition, is the new rendition of the classic textbook Human Genetics: A Problem-Based Approach. Thoroughly updated and restructured, this brand new edition uses both a classic didactic approach to teach basic genetic concepts and a problem-based approach to demonstrate the clinical applications of genetics in medical practice. By combining both these approaches, Human Genetics and Genomics is suitable both as a textbook for genetics courses, and as a bridge into the clinical environment.

The third edition features greater emphasis on cutting edge technologies and the latest genetic issues, and a vast array of new pedagogy, such as:

  • Clinical snapshots covering major genetic disorders
  • Ethical Implications boxes discussing related ethical issues
  • Key summary points at the beginning of each chapter and Q&As at the end of each chapter for self-assessment
  • Hot topics covering new and emerging areas in genetics
  • Recommended reading for each chapter
  • A companion website at www.blackwellpublishing.com/korfgenetics
