Human genetics has blossomed from an obscure branch of biological science and occasional explanation for exceedingly rare disorders to a field all of its own that affects everyone. Human Genetics: The Basics introduces the key questions and issues in this emerging field, including:

    • The common ancestry of all humanity
    • The role of genes in sickness and health
    • Debates over the use of genetic technology

Written in an engaging, narrative manner, this concise introduction is an ideal starting point for anyone who wants to know more about genes, DNA, and the genetic ties that bind us all.

About the Author:

Ricki Lewis is Adjunct Professor of Medical Education at the Alden March Bioethics Institute, USA, and a genetic counselor with CareNet Medical Group. Her PhD is in genetics. Ricki is the author of several textbooks, including Human Genetics, Hole's Human Anatomy and Physiology, and Life.

After many years of writing college life science textbooks, Ricki is branching out. Her first novel,
Stem Cell Symphony, was published in 2008. A nontextbook, short introduction to her field, Human Genetics: The Basics, was published by Routledge Press on October 30, 2010, the first science book in their The Basics series. She is currently writing a book about children pioneering gene therapy, tentatively entitled The Forever Fix. It will be published by St. Martin's Press.

Review:

'Providing the balance between a science book that can appeal to the general public while still providing useful information to the science "professional" is always a challenge. Lewis (medical education, Alden March Bioethics Institute) has succeeded in producing a useful source for each audience.' - Choice May 2011

 

‘Ricki Lewis has done a remarkable job with this book’ - Charles W. Rodgers, The American Journal of Human Genetics
