The fourth edition of this classical reference book can once again be relied upon to present a cohesive and up-to-date exposition of all aspects of human and medical genetics. Human genetics has become one of the main basic sciences in medicine, and molecular genetics is increasingly becoming a major part of this field. This new edition integrates a wealth of new information - mainly describing the influence of the "molecular revolution" - including the principles of epigenetic processes which together create the phenotype of a human being. Other revisions are an improved layout, sub-division into a larger number of chapters, as well as two-colour print throughout for ease of reference, and many of the figures are now in full colour.For graduates and those already working in medical genetics.

Editorial Reviews

"...should be essential reading for all geneticists. Reading the contents alone sparked a sense of anticipation that made this book essential bedtime reading! ... -there's nothing boring here." Heredity"...a classic textbook and compendium of information. It is, therefore, a distinct pleasure to open the third edition..." Trends in GeneticsFrom the reviews of the fourth edition:"A series of high level reviews, produced with the help of 76 co-authors. . There is a welcome emphasis on formal genetics, which sets this book apart from most others. . This is a handsome book, printed on good quality paper, well bound, and generally produced to Springer's customary high standard. . It will presumably mainly end up in libraries . . Anybody needing to prepare a lecture on one of the topics covered would be very glad to find a copy there."­­­ (Andrew Read, Human Genetics, Vol. 128, 2010)
