9780415579865: Human Genetics: The Basics

Human genetics has blossomed from an obscure branch of biological science and occasional explanation for exceedingly rare disorders to a field all of its own that affects everyone. Human Genetics: The Basics introduces the key questions and issues in this emerging field, including:

    • The common ancestry of all humanity
    • The role of genes in sickness and health
    • Debates over the use of genetic technology

Written in an engaging, narrative manner, this concise introduction is an ideal starting point for anyone who wants to know more about genes, DNA, and the genetic ties that bind us all.

Review:

'Providing the balance between a science book that can appeal to the general public while still providing useful information to the science "professional" is always a challenge. Lewis (medical education, Alden March Bioethics Institute) has succeeded in producing a useful source for each audience.' - Choice May 2011

 

‘Ricki Lewis has done a remarkable job with this book’ - Charles W. Rodgers, The American Journal of Human Genetics

About the Author:

Ricki Lewis is Adjunct Professor of Medical Education at the Alden March Bioethics Institute, USA, and a genetic counselor with CareNet Medical Group. She is the author of several textbooks including Human Genetics, Hole’s Human Anatomy and Physiology, and Life.
