Advice and Guidance in Clinical Genetics

Our genes are what make us. They are the blueprint that defines everything, from the colour of your eyes to your very attitude to life. However, our genetic makeup can sometimes carry defects that range from the unnoticeable to life-limiting. 

This chapter collection contains expert research from our latest range of titles, including two free PDF downloads of the Oxford Desk Reference in Clinical Genetics and Genomics.
