An essential source of reference for trainee and practitioner genetic counsellors, medical geneticists and clinicians, as well as specialist nurses, counsellors, social scientists, ethicists, and laboratory staff

The book contains updated information on: developments in common disease genetics; new molecular techniques and genetic counselling; non-invasive prenatal diagnosis; the molecular basis of congenital malformations; the history of genetic counselling; and the social and ethical aspects of advances in genetics.
