Human genetics : problems and approaches by Friedrich Vogel( Book )

71 editions published between 1979 and 1997 in 3 languages and held by 1,508 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The first two editions of this book, published in 1979 and in 1986, were well re­ ceived by the scientific community. Translations into Italian, Japanese, and Rus­ sian suggest that this book was regarded useful in many parts of the world. Mean­ while, human genetics has seen dramatic developments, and the "molecular revo­ lution" has attracted thousands of scientists, including many molecular biologists, to this field. About 3700 human genes have already been mapped to chromosomal sites. Many such genes have been cloned, and the various mutations causing dis­ ease have been identified. Novel mutational mechanisms such as expanded trinu­ cleotide repeats have been discovered in conditions such as Huntington's disease and the fragile X syndrome of mental retardation. Gene action now can often be elucidated by studying the pathway from gene to phenotype following positional cloning rather than working in the opposite direction, as was customarily done be­ fore the tools of "new genetics" were available. In an increasing number of genetic diseases, the pathogenic mechanisms have been elucidated with positive conse­ quences for prevention and treatment. It therefore became necessary to rewrite al­ most completely major portions of this book. These developments are now making genetics arguably the leading basic science for medicine, as well as a recognized medical speciality. But all these changes do not mean that the entire framework of human genetics had to be reconstructed
The Genetic basis of common diseases by Richard Allen King( )

24 editions published between 1986 and 2002 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,426 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Since the first edition of this highly acclaimed text was published in 1992, much new knowledge has been gained about the role of genetic factors in common adult disease, and we now have a better understanding of the molecular processes involved in genetic susceptibility and disease mechanisms. The Second Edition fully incorporates these advances. The entire book has been updated and twelve new chapters have been added. Most of these chapters deal with diseases such as gallstones, osteoporosis, osteoarthrits, skin cancer, other common skin diseases, prostate cancer and migraine headaches that are seen by all physicians. Others address the genetic and molecular basis of spondyloarthropathies, lupus, hemochromatosis, IgA deficiency, mental retardation, hearing loss, and the role of mitochondrial variation in adult diseases. Chapters on the evolution of human genetic disease and on animal models add important background on the complexities of these diseases. Unique clinical applications of genetics to common diseases are covered in additional new chapters on genetic counselling, pharmacogenetics, and the genetic consequences of modern therapeutics
Vogel and Motulsky's human genetics : problems and approaches by Michael R Speicher( )

26 editions published between 2009 and 2010 in English and held by 538 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The fourth, completely revised edition of this classic reference and textbook presents a cohesive and up-to-date exposition of the concepts, results, and problems underlying theory and practice in human and medical genetics. In the 10 years since the appearance of the third edition, many new insights have emerged for understanding the genetic basis of development and function in human health and disease. Human genetics, with its emphasis on molecular concepts and techniques, has become a key discipline in medicine and the biomedical sciences. The fourth edition has been extensively expanded by new chapters on timely topics such as epigenetics, pharmacogenetics, gene therapy, cloning, and genetic epidemiology, and databases for basic and clinical genetics. In addition a multi/chapter section giving an overview on the main model organisms (mouse, dog, worm, fly, fish) used in human genetics research has been introduced. This book will be of interest to human and medical geneticists, scientists in all biomedical sciences, physicians and epidemiologists, as well as to graduate and postgraduate students who desire to learn the fundamentals of this fascinating field
