This book bridges the gap between molecular biology and human genetics. Specifically written for medical students and human geneticists, it serves as a guide to this developing field. The authors introduce the basic concepts of genetics and molecular biology and describe the experimental tools used. DNA transcription, replication and mutation is described before progressing to chapters detailing specific cases of human genetic disease. Social and ethical implications are considered. This book should be of interest to students of molecular medicine, human genetics, molecular genetics, and biomedicine.
...this book's greatest asset is that the authors clearly relish their subject so much that it makes enjoyable reading...this book has a delightfully literary, old-fashioned feel to it...crammed with detail and factually accurate...This book would be suitable in an advanced undergraduate or junior graduate course and deserves to do well... - Molecular Medicine Today
