Emery and Rimoin's Principles and Practice of Medical Genetics and Genomics: Hematologic, Renal, and Immunologic Disorders (Hardcover)
Emery and Rimoin's Principles and Practice of Medical Genetics and Genomics: Hematologic, Renal, and Immunologic Disorders, Seventh Edition thoroughly examines medical genetics and genomics as applied to hematologic, immunologic and endocrinologic disorders, with an emphasis on understanding the genetic mechanisms underlying these conditions, diagnostic approaches, and treatment methods. Here, genetic researchers, students and health professionals will find new and fully revised chapters on the genetics of red blood cell diseases, rhesus and other fetomaternal incompatibilities, immunodeficiency disorders, inherited complement deficiencies, celiac disease, and diabetes mellitus, as well as thyroid, parathyroid and gonad disorders, among other conditions.
With regular advances in genomic technologies propelling precision medicine into the clinic, this book, which has served as the ultimate resource for clinicians integrating genetics into medical practice, continues to provide the most important information. With nearly 5,000 pages of detailed coverage, contributions from over 250 of the world's most trusted authorities in medical genetics, and a series of 11 volumes available for individual sale, this updated edition includes the latest information on seminal topics such as prenatal diagnosis, genome and exome sequencing, public health genetics, genetic counseling, and management and treatment strategies.
