Short description Human molecular genetics is the field of study focused on the functions of the human genetic system in relation to inherited diseases. An Introduction to Human Molecular Genetics, Second Edition examines how human genes are discovered and how disease genes cause particular disorders. This revised edition offers a comprehensive human molecular genetics text within a modern systems approach that focuses attention on the affected tissues and organs, and also reinforces their function in a clinical context.
