Harper's Practical Genetic Counselling
Easy to use, and useful when kept close at hand in the room where you work. The book is a pleasure to read: the style elegant and authoritative.' Lancet'...this book is a wonderful reference to enable primary physicians to be informed about their patients.' Annals of Internal MedicineUniversally used across the world by genetic counsellors, medical geneticists and clinicians alike, Harper's Practical Genetic Counselling has established itself as the essential guide to counselling those at risk from inherited disorders.Increasingly, common disorders are known to have a genetic component and this book provides invaluable and up to date guidance through the profusion of new information in this area and the associated psychosocial and ethical considerations and concerns.Within its established, tried and trusted framework, the book contains new chapters on: laboratory methods, new genetic sequencing techniques and the applications of genome-wide SNP association studies, genetic susceptibility, cross cultural aspects and the genetic counselling process. It has expand chapters on genetic screening and screening of newborn, treatment techniques and rational approaches to treatment, non-Mendelian inheritance, free fetal DNA in prenatal screening and diagnosis.Key features:- Fully updated to provide the very latest information when in a busy consulting room or clinic- Clear and authoritative advice applicable to everyday clinical practice- Reflects the rapid development of knowledge in this area, including the implications of the human genome project and related technologyThe eighth edition of this popular, best selling text continues to be an essential source of reference for trainee and practitioner genetic counsellors, medical geneticists and clinicians. Also it provides valuable background for specialist nurses, counsellors, social scientists, ethicists as well as genetics laboratory staff.

The Human Genome in Health and Disease
A Story of Four Letters
editore: CRC Press Inc
The human genome is a linear sequence of roughly 3 billion bases and information regarding this genome is accumulating at an astonishing rate. Inspired by these advances, The Human Genome in Health and Disease: A Story of Four Letters explores the intimate link between sequence information and biological function. A range of sequence-based functional units of the genome are discussed and illustrated with inherited disorders and cancer. In addition, the book considers valuable medical applications related to human genome sequencing, such as gene therapy methods and the identification of causative mutations in rare genetic disorders. The primary audiences of the book are students of genetics, biology, medicine, molecular biology and bioinformatics. Richly illustrated with review questions provided for each chapter, the book helps students without previous studies of genetics and molecular biology. It may also be of benefit for advanced non-academics, which in the era of personal genomics, want to learn more about their genome. Key selling features: Molecular sequence perspective, explaining the relationship between DNA sequence motifs and biological function Aids in understanding the functional impact of mutations and genetic variants Material presented at basic level, making it accessible to students without previous studies of genetics and molecular biology Richly illustrated with questions provided to each chapter

Human Molecular Genetics has been carefully crafted over successive editions to provide an authoritative introduction to the molecular aspects of human genetics, genomics and cell biology.Maintaining the features that have made previous editions so popular, this fifth edition has been completely updated in line with the latest developments in the field. Older technologies such as cloning and hybridization have been merged and summarized, coverage of newer DNA sequencing technologies has been expanded, and powerful new gene editing and single-cell genomics technologies have been added. The coverage of GWAS, functional genomics, stem cells, and disease modeling has been expanded. Greater focus is given to inheritance and variation in the context of populations and on the role of epigenetics in gene regulation.

Genetica umana e medica
Giovanni Neri, Maurizio Genuardi
La quarta edizione di Genetica umana e medica si rivolge principalmente agli studenti del corso di laurea in Medicina e Chirurgia, agli studenti dei corsi di laurea in Professioni sanitarie e di Scienze biologiche oltre che agli specializzandi in genetica medica. Questa nuova edizione nasce per dar voce alle recenti scoperte e avanzamenti della materia che è una delle discipline in cui negli ultimi anni si sono osservati più sviluppi, sia a livello di metodiche di investigazione sia di pratica clinica. Tutti i capitoli sono stati dunque aggiornati, in particolar modo: - Meccanismi atipici di ereditarietà con la trattazione di un maggior numero di patologie mitocondriali; - Analisi molecolari degli acidi nucleici con l’aggiunta di nuovi pannelli diagnostici; - Bioinformatica applicata alla consulenza genetica in cui sono affrontate in maggior misura le varianti identificabili attraverso nuove tecniche di sequenziamento genomico; - Applicazioni dell’ingegneria genetica in medicina con la trattazione di nuovi modelli di studio e di innovative tecniche di ingegneria genetica - Diagnosi prenatale di malattia genetica con la discussione della nuova modalità di analisi del DNA fetale isolato da sangue materno mediante next generation sequencing. I capitoli “Malattie aritmogene ereditarie”, “Malattie ereditarie sistemiche del tessuto connettivo” e “Patologie correlate al gene CFTR” sono stati completamente rivisti ed è stato infine aggiunto un nuovo capitolo su una tematica attualissima: Autismo e psicosi maggiori. Come nelle precedenti edizioni il volume è suddiviso in due parti: una prima parte introduttiva, che presenta i concetti di base (Le basi della genetica umana), e una seconda più orientata clinicamente (La genetica nella pratica clinica). I lettori potranno accedere a oltre 270 test di autovalutazione a risposta multipla, con risposte argomentate disponibili su studenti33.it.
