Abstract

This book on clinical genetics and genomics includes many common-sense approaches, useful standards and definitions, suggestions for appropriate testing, and excellent references. It is meant to be ‘first-line’ support. It is designed to provide a basic guide to the clinical consultation, be it in outpatients or on the ward, and is intended to be used with other data sources, web resources, and texts. Blank pages are distributed throughout the book to enable the reader to update and personalize the copy with notes from current journals, guidelines, seminars, and lectures. Medical genetics trainees, residents, and fellows should particularly find this book useful; the mature and experienced clinical geneticist should also find it useful and thoughtfully constructed.
