  • Description
    Human Genetics: From Molecules to Medicine provides balanced coverage of molecular and clinical genetics for the preclinical medical student with relevant examples of the application of basic science to clinical medicine. With its unique, systems-based approach ideal for integrated curricula, the text guides students through their genetics, pediatrics, and medicine rotations and will also be helpful as a pocket resource for residents in pediatrics, internal medicine, family medicine, and obstetrics. Content has been carefully adapted from the critically acclaimed German text for the English language audience.
