ThisAtlas of Inherited Retinal Disordersprovides a thorough overview of various inherited retinal dystrophies with emphasis on phenotype characteristics and how they relate to the most frequently encountered genes. It also meets the previously unmet needs of PhD students who will benefit from seeing the phenotypes of genes they work on and study. Further, because genetic-testing costs are quite high and spiraling higher, thisAtlaswill help geneticists familiarize themselves with the candidate gene approach to test patients' genomes, enabling more cost-efficient testing. This invaluable atlas is organized into eight sections starting with an introduction to the basic knowledge on retinal imaging, followed by diseases listed according to inheritance pattern and disorders with extraocular manifestations grouped by defining features. This structure will be intuitive to clinicians and students studying inherited retinal disorders.

Stephen H. Tsang MD, PhD has been culturing embryonic stem (ES) cells since 1992 and in 1995 created the first mouse model for a recessive form of retinitis pigmentosa (RP) by applying homologous recombination to ES cell technology. Since 1996, the Dr. Tsang has been quantifying retinal function and structure in gene-targeted mutant mi...
