O knihe

Through six editions, Thompson & Thompson’s Genetics in Medicine has been a well-established favourite textbook on this fascinating and rapidly evolving field, integrating the classic principles of human genetics with modern molecular genetics and the latest clinical applications. Clearly written and abundantly illustrated, the New 7th Edition retains all of the features that have made its predecessors so popular while also comprehensively detailing all of the new developments and advances in the field.

Reviews


\"The word ‘Genetics’ makes most students’ minds fill with dreaded thoughts of Mendel’s peas and Darwin’s beard but the reality is that it is now, more than ever, one of the most important subjects in medicine along with the likes of anatomy and physiology. This book helps cement this key subject in the minds of all students. It is written in a clear and approachable manner, terminology is explained and diagrams are used to emphasises and clarify. The authors have structured this well, beginning with the very basic concepts of genetics and inheritance then building on to the more clinical topics such as diseases resulting from mutations. Each chapter ends with a list of questions which test what the student has learnt whilst reading a particular chapter. These questions are also a very good revision tool. If you want to learn genetics buy this book.\" Medical Student, Cardiff University, UK \"The bolded words in the text are of excellent help to a student. These make sure that you know their meaning before moving on...very informative and reader-friendly for medical students!\" Medical Student, University of Bergen, Norway
