The fourth edition of a standard text for medical undergraduates, this book continues to follow the format of previous editions by dividing medical genetics into basic principles and clinical applications, thereby fitting the preclinical and clinical courses of most medical schools. Medical genetics, once an academic discipline, now affects all areas of clinical practice, and this book should also be a useful clinical guide for the practitioner and the basic scientist with an interest in diagnostic medical genetics.
