Material type: TextTextPublisher: Garland Science/Taylor & Francis Group, New York : [2015]Edition: 1ST EDITIONDescription: xvii, 526 pages : color illustrauons ; 28 cmContent type: text Media type: unmediated Carrier type: volumeISBN: 9780815344803 (paperback : alk. paper)Subject(s): Genetic Phenomena | Genetic Diseases, Inborn -- therapy | Genomics | Individualized MedicineDDC classification: 616.042 LOC classification: RB155.5 | .S77 2015Summary: "Genetics and Genomics in Medicine is a new textbook written for undergraduate and graduate students, as well as medical researchers, which explains the science behind the uses of genetics and genomics in medicine today. It is not just about rare inherited and chromosomal disorders, but how genetics affects the whole spectrum of human health and disease. DNA technologies are explained, with emphasis on the modern techniques that have revolutionized the use of genetic information in medicine and are indicating the role of genetics in common complex diseases. The detailed, integrative coverage of genetic approaches to treatment and prevention includes pharmacogenomics and the prospects for personalized medicine. Cancers are essentially genetic diseases and are given a dedicated chapter that includes new insights from cancer genome sequencing. Clinical disorders are covered throughout and there are extensive end-of-chapter questions and problems"--
