Human Genetics, the first genetics book to combine text with problem-based tutorial exercises, is the ideal textbook for student-driven learning. Each chapter focuses on a core concept of human genetics, illustrated by a corresponding clinical case that guides the reader through key principles in the text. Material from classic Mendelain genetics, molecular genetics, and quantitative genetics provides a context in which the role of genes in disease can be readily understood. Additionally, 300 illustrations clarify and reinforce discussions of genetic disorders. And, questions at the end of each chapter facilitate self-assessment.
