This concise, high-yield title in the popular Integrated Review Series focuses on the core knowledge in genetics while linking that information to related concepts from other basic science disciplines. Case-based questions at the end of each chapter enable you to gauge your mastery of the material, and a color-coded format allows you to quickly find the specific guidance you need. This concise and user-friendly reference provides crucial guidance for the early years of medical training and USMLE preparation.

  • This title includes additional digital media when purchased in print format. For this digital book  edition, media content is not included.
    • Spend more time reviewing and less time searching thanks to an extremely focused, "high-yield" presentation.
    • Gauge your mastery of the material and build confidence with both case-based andUSMLE-style questions that provide effective chapter review and quick practice for your exams.
    • This title includes additional digital media when purchased in print format. For this digital book  edition, media content is not included.
    • Grasp and retain vital concepts more easily thanks to a color-coded format, succinct text, key concept boxes, tables, and dynamic illustrations that facilitate learning in a highly visual approach.

    I have been fortunate to have excellent mentors during my career in academics. I have learned a great deal about my own learning through this journey. My goals as a teacher are to help students become challenged by the fascination of learning, visualize what they cannot necessarily see, and describe what they see with integration of thought broadly across disciplines. This textbook is dedicated to the many wonderful students and colleagues who constantly challenge the boundaries of learning - theirs and mine. Finally, without the support and understanding of my family, especially my children, Emily and Seth, this project could not have been completed.

    Preface
    Though the youngest of all the medical specialties, genetics embodies the essence of all normal and abnormal development and all normal and disease states. Perhaps because of its recent recognition as a discipline and perhaps because of its derivation from research in several areas, it is easier for genetics to be an integrated discipline. Approaching genetics as a particular gene located on a specific chromosome and inherited in a specific manner loses the appreciation of spatial and temporal dimensions of expression and the many, many factors affecting every single aspect of development, survival, and even death.
    Every medical discipline is connected to human well-being through the mechanisms of gene expression, environmental influences, and inheritance. Genetics underscores the many biochemical pathways, physiologic processes, and pathologic mechanisms presented in other volumes of this series. It explains better the morphologic variation observed in embryologic development and anatomic presentation. It provides better insight into susceptibility to infection and disease. It offers insight into neurologic and behavioral abnormalities. It is defining the strategies for gene therapy and pharmacogenomics. For these reasons, it has been exciting to put this book together.
    This text focuses on well-known and better described diseases and disorders that students and practitioners are likely to read about in other references. Many of these do not occur at a high frequency in populations, but they underscore major mechanisms and major concepts associated with many other medical situations. It is my hope that this text will be as stimulating to read as it was to write.
