This fully revised edition aims to make it as easy to understand and remember as possible, to ensure a solid grounding in the essential underlying principles and how they relate to clinical practice. It incorporates the latest developments in this fascinating and fast-moving field – including the human genome project and spin-offs such as the thousand genome project – as well as discussion of important ethical issues. Emerging molecular tools and laboratory techniques are explained so that you can appreciate where new treatments for genetic disease and screening technologies have arisen. An updated self-assessment section matching the latest exam formats then allows you to assess your progress and test your performance.
