Overview

High-Yield Genetics is an important addition to the High-Yield Series, which medical students rely on heavily to review for the USMLE. This new volume provides a concise, clinically oriented summary of genetics in the popular High-Yield outline format. The book is generously illustrated with schematic line drawings as well as photographs of the most clinically relevant diseases. Illustrations appear at the end of each chapter in a multi-panel figure, similar to a mini-atlas.
