Professor Max Levitan has revised and updated this established textbook on human genetics. Contributors review the basic laws and explain complex genetic concepts, drawing upon examples from human population genetics and medicine, and incorporate the latest research on new techniques in molecular genetics. The lengthy reviews of basic Mendelian genetics have been cut, to focus exclusively on human genetics and the text is fully illustrated with electron micrographs and clinical photographs of all common genetic disorders.show more
