Everything a student needs to know about medical genetics is here in the 15th edition of this award-winning textbook. Thoroughly updated and revised throughout to map a fast-moving area, the 15th edition continues Emery’s enviable reputation for successfully balancing up-to-dateness in a rapidly developing field with a strong basis in practical clinical genetics for medical students. With MCQs and Case-Based Review Questions, end of chapter summaries, it is the essential tool for this complex but foundational topic for all medical undergraduates, as well as postgraduates seeking to improve their understanding and knowledge.
Divided into three restructured sections to make the book easier to use for a variety of readers: Scientific Basis of Human Genetics; Genetics in Medicine and Genomic Medicine; Clinical Genetics, Counselling and Ethics
•Interactive self-assessment questions
•Online hyperlinks to important genetics websites and clinical databases.
•Update of clinical figures to include more full-colour images
•An extensive glossary of terms
•Full colour art to visualise the appearance of genetic disorders and assist with the understanding of complex genetic structures
•Explore the social, ethical and counselling issues surrounding the study and treatment of genetic disorders.
