Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0192641654, Paperback)

This popular introductory survey has been completely revised and updated. There are two new chapters covering genetic engineering and prenatal diagnosis, and the chapters on chromosome abnormalities and on molecular genetics and the hemoglobinopathies have been rewritten. Overall, the new edition synthesizes classical and molecular medical genetics and combines an introduction to the role of genetics in medicine with a deliberate attempt to develop those areas that are the special concern of the practicing clinical geneticist. From reviews of the seventh edition: "Recommended for physicians, medical students, and graduate and undergraduate students, including those with little or no background knowledge of medical genetics....I also recommend the present edition of this classic...for genetic associate training programs, since it presents a broad and accurate approach to medical genetics."--American Journal of Human Genetics
