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."

Human Molecular Genetics has been carefully crafted over successive editions to provide an authoritative introduction to the molecular aspects of human genetics, genomics and cell biology. Maintaining the features that have made previous editions so popular, this fifth edition has been completely updated in line with the latest developments in the field. Older technologies such as cloning and hybridization have been merged and summarized, coverage of newer DNA sequencing technologies has been expanded, and powerful new gene editing and single-cell genomics technologies have been added. The coverage of GWAS, functional genomics, stem cells, and disease modeling has been expanded. Greater focus is given to inheritance and variation in the context of populations and on the role of epigenetics in gene regulation. Key features: Fully integrated approach to the molecular aspects of human genetics, genomics, and cell biology Accessible text is supported and enhanced throughout by superb artwork illustrating the key concepts and mechanisms Summary boxes at the end of each chapter provide clear learning points Annotated further reading helps readers navigate the wealth of additional information in this complex subject and provides direction for further study Reorganized into five sections for improved access to related topics Also new to this edition - brand new chapter on evolution and anthropology from the authors of the highly acclaimed Human Evolutionary Genetics A proven and popular textbook for upper-level undergraduates and graduate students, the new edition of Human Molecular Genetics remains the `go-to' book for those studying human molecular genetics or genomics courses around the world.

This book elucidates comprehensive, application-based knowledge in the field of human genetics from a scientific (Read) and clinical (Donnai) perspective. The respected authors, marvelous illustrations, the unique didactic structure and comprehension questions (with answers) have propelled this title on to the lists of numerous leading universities - including Harvard Medical School - in Britain and the USA. The editors of this licensed edition have adapted the translation to German circumstances and have added an additionalcase on sterility.

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."
