A complete introductory textbook on how to include basic genetic principles into the practice of clinical medicine
Schaefer and Thompson’s Medical Genetics (ePub/PDF) is the first textbook to emphasize the everyday application of genetic assessment and its diagnostic; therapeutic; and preventive consequences in clinical practice. It is aimed to be a text that you can use throughout medical school and refer back to when questions come up during residency and; eventually; practice. Medical Genetics: An Integrated Approach is penned as a narrative where each chapter builds upon the base laid by prior ones. Chapters can also be used as stand-alone learning aids for particular topics. Taken as a whole; this timely ebook delivers a complete summary of genetics in medicine. You will find detailed; expert coverage of such main topics as:
- Genetic therapies
- Mendelian inheritance
- Disorders of organelles
- Genetic testing and screening
- The structure and function of genes
- Key genetic diseases; disorders; and syndromes
Every chapter of Medical Genetics is logically organized into three sections:
