Medical and Health Genomics provides concise and evidence-based technical and practical information on the applied and translational aspects of genome sciences and the technologies related to non-clinical medicine and public health. Coverage is based on evolving paradigms of genomic medicine in particular, the relation to public and population health genomics now being rapidly incorporated in health management and administration, with further implications for clinical population and disease management.

  • Provides extensive coverage of the emergent field of health genomics and its huge relevance to healthcare management
  • Presents user-friendly language accompanied by explanatory diagrams, figures, and many references for further study
  • Covers the applied, but non-clinical, sciences across disease discovery, genetic analysis, genetic screening, and prevention and management
  • Details the impact of clinical genomics across a diverse array of public and community health issues, and within a variety of global healthcare systems
Professor Kumar has considerable previous experience in writing and editing books and journals related to genetics and genomics. His books include Genomics and Clinical Medicine and Genomics and Health in the Developing World. He founded and leads the new open access journal Applied and Translational Genomics, published by Elsevier. He...
