HIGHLY COMMENDED IN THE 2016 BMA MEDICAL BOOK AWARDS! Instructors' comments on new, 3rd edition: "I LOVED the book. I've never seen anything like it, and I've reviewed a lot of genetics texts. The way that cases are presented throughout is extremely novel." "I am greatly pleased with the revisions. In my opinion, there is an increased clarity in the text (which will serve students well), and many welcomed updates based on current literature. Good job!" "I LIKE IT A LOT!!" "The book looks good and we will certainly be recommending it for our medical genetics course this autumn." "This is a fantastic book that I enjoy so much teaching from." "I have been reviewing the book. I think it is a great teaching tool since you can follow a case from beginning to end." "I have used this book every year since the first edition was published and it is a perfect fit for my human genetics course. I will definitely continue to use it." "It's great. I will recommend the book as a main text for the medical student class." In the few years since the previous edition technical progress, especially the widespread use of whole-genome technologies, has brought many advances in the understanding, diagnosis and treatment of genetic disease. As a result, most chapters have been substantially rewritten and updated to reflect this. The unique structure and format remains the same, but significant new material has been added to cover: the widespread use of next-generation sequencing as a routine diagnostic tool the checking of a patient's whole exome for the cause of their problem noninvasive prenatal diagnosis by next-generation sequencing of free fetal DNA in the maternal circulation a new integrated treatment of epigenetics mosaicism, 'RASopathies' and disorders of the spliceosome are described in new Disease boxes dysmorphology in more detail New Clinical Genetics continues to offer the most innovative case-based approach to modern genetics. It is used worldwide as a textbook for medical students, but also as an essential guide to the field for genetic counselors, physician assistants, and clinical and nurse geneticists. Reviews of earlier editions: "This book provides a wonderful case-based learning environment. There are also self-assessment questions. Students are not given model answers but are provided with guidance on how to work out the correct answers for themselves. Excellent!" Human Genetics "This book is a very valuable tool that will be used by future geneticists all over Europe and beyond, both as a teaching material and as a source of excellent knowledge."

New Clinical Genetics is a best-selling medical genetics text written by two experts in the field. Uniquely the book fully integrates cases throughout - these are then reconsidered and expanded as the reader's knowledge increases. The second edition of "New Clinical Genetics" has been comprehensively updated, but the unique structure and format of the first edition have been retained. New cases have been introduced covering Fragile X and the identification of an underlying chromosome problem by SNP chip analysis.
The innovative integrated case-based approach coupled with the clear writing style of the authors has made this book a hugely successful textbook for medical students worldwide. It is also an essential guide to modern medical genetics for all those involved in the field, from clinical and nurse geneticists to genetic counselors. Printed in full colour throughout.
While many of the basic scientific principles remain, much new material has been added:
- SNP arrays and next generation sequencing (including whole exome sequencing) are described and their impact on clinical genetic services discussed
- noncoding RNAs are covered in more detail
- developmental pathways are discussed in the context of the RAS-MAPK pathway
- the value and limitations of genome-wide association studies for identifying susceptibility to common diseases are reviewed in the light of the extensive experimental data now available
- the final chapter has been substantially enlarged to show how genetic services are delivered and the increasing role of clinical geneticists in patient management
Please note that an electronic version of this book is now available from kno.com
From reviews of the first edition:
"Very few books have attempted to do what the authors have accomplished so well. They make genetics simple, attractive, and real. They provide a link between daily situations in the practice of clinical genetics and the complex information available in human genetics. I look forward to subsequent editions of this wonderful work."
"Doody's Notes

"This book is a very valuable tool that will be used by future geneticists all over Europe and beyond, both as a teaching material and as a source of excellent knowledge."
"European Journal of Human Genetics
"
"The book can also be read through the case studies which span the chapters and follow the experience of individual families to illustrate specific points. This is a novel approach and, as in real life, the information on families is slowly teased out, covering a combination of topics. The use of such case studies brings genetics to life."

Following the completion of the Human Genome Project the content and organisation of the third edition of Human Molecular Genetics has been thoroughly revised.

* Part One (Chapters 1-7) covers basic material on DNA structure and function, chromosomes, cells and development, pedigree analysis and the basic techniques used in the laboratory.
* Part Two (Chapters 8-12) discusses the various genome sequencing projects and the insights they provide into the organisation, expression, variation and evolution of our genome.
* Part Three (Chapters 13-18) focuses on mapping, identifying and diagnosing the genetic causes of mendelian and complex diseases and cancer.
* Part Four (Chapters 19-21) looks at the wider horizons of functional genomics, proteomics, bioinformatics, animal models and therapy.

There are new chapters on cells and development and on functional genomics. The sections on complex diseases have been completely rewritten and reorganized, as has the chapter on Genome Projects. Other changes include a new section on molecular phylogenetics (Chapter 12) and the introduction of 'Ethics Boxes' to discuss some of the implications of the new knowledge. Virtually every page has been revised and updated to take account of the stunning developments of the past four years since the publication of the last edition of Human Molecular Genetics.

Features:
* Integration of Human Genome Project data throughout the book
* Two new chapters 'Cells and Development' (Chapter 3) and 'Beyond the Genome Project: Functional Genomics, Proteomics and Bioinformatics' (Chapter 19)
* Completely rewritten and reorganised coverage of complex disease genetics
* Increased emphasis on gene function and on applications of genetic knowledge, including ethical issues
* More prominence given to novel approaches to treating disease, such as cell-based therapies, pharmacogenomics, and personalised medicine
* Special topic boxes that include detailed coverage of ethical, legal and social issues, including eugenics, genetic testing and discrimination, germ-line gene therapy and genetic enhancement, and human cloning
* Contains two indices: a general index and one that contains names of diseases and disorders
