Overview

Human Genetics and Genomics, 3rd edition, the new rendition of the classic textbook Human Genetics: A Problem-Based Approach, merges basic genetic principles with clinical applications of genetics in medical practice. By presenting the core concepts of human genetics while maintaining an emphasis on a problem-based learning and clinical approach, the third edition of Human Genetics and Genomics acts both as a textbook for genetics courses, and a bridge into the clinical environment.

Features include enhanced emphasis on microbiology content, a chapter devoted to laboratory techniques, and a vast array of new pedagogy, such as:

  • Recommended readings for each chapter
  • "Clinical snapshots" covering major genetic disorders and integrating a clinical approach
  • Ethics boxes covering ethical implications in genetics
  • Key points at the beginning of each chapter for a quick summary and Q&As at the end of each chapter for self-testing
  • "Hot topics" sections at the ends of chapters covering new and emerging areas in genetics
