The second section applies these principles to medicine through the essential 'laws' of inheritance, the chromosome anomolies, multifactorial inheritance, normal polymorphism and gene frequency, then moving on to gene mapping, mutagenisis, cancer and immunogenetics. The final section addreses the clinical application of the above principles in pedigree drawing and molecular diagnostic procedures based on the human gene map, PCR and Southern techniques, risk assessment, genetic counselling, gene therapy and much more.Medical Genetics At A Glance is an ideal resource that fits the budget and reading time of medical students and those seeking a quick yet thorough, introduction to this fast moving field.
