Human Genetics and Genomics, Third Edition, is the new rendition of the classic textbook Human Genetics: A Problem-Based Approach. Thoroughly updated and restructured, this brand new edition uses both a classic didactic approach to teach basic genetic concepts and a problem-based approach to demonstrate the clinical applications of genetics in medical practice. By combining both these approaches, Human Genetics and Genomics is suitable both as a textbook for genetics courses, and as a bridge into the clinical environment.

The third edition features greater emphasis on cutting edge technologies and the latest genetic issues, and a vast array of new pedagogy, such as:

Clinical snapshots covering major genetic disorders Ethical Implications boxes discussing related ethical issues Key summary points at the beginning of each chapter and Q&As at the end of each chapter for self-assessment Hot topics covering new and emerging areas in genetics Recommended reading for each chapter A companion website at www.blackwellpublishing.com/korfgenetics

Good book
This is the text my instructor uses for our class. It doesn't contain enough practice problems with solutions. I need to get another book that has more practice problems like we get tested on.
The book that I received was in very good condition initially. As I started reading the book the pages started falling out because of poor binding quality. I immediately notifed Sandra V. and she quickly responded and asked me to return to her for a full refund. She even let me keep the book until I finished my midterm since I had to order a new book. I am giving her 5 stars because of her phenomenal customer service. Sandra originally e-mailed me asking if I was satisfied and immediately responded to my binding issue. I have nothing but excellent comments about her customer service and responsiveness to my book problems. I highly recommend her to other customers.
Product was recieved and was in good condition. It took a little long to get here (but I believe it was due to some misunderstanding in payment methods on my part). Currently studying in Grenada and find this book very helpful. Thanks :)

This text would make a wonderful supplement to a more detailed molecular genetics text. The book's strength is that it uses a case-study approach, using specific disorders as models of genetic concepts. The weakness of the book is how it deals with biochemistry. I feel it assumes the reader has a pretty good prior understanding of everything from DNA structure and molecular dogma to molecular genetic analysis and lab technique. Overall, a very readable book.
I received the book only a week and a half after I ordered it, and if the weather had been better I would have probably received it sooner. The price was extremely fair, the quality was brand new, and it was the latest edition on the market. Overall, I am happy with my purchase.
Clear and compelling, each topic presented in a clincal setting
When I read this book, I was very excited the plot of it. Start with patient case, end with resonable explaination of genetic base of disease. I think it is highly recommandable to the doctors andmedical students who want to connect basic and clinical aspect of medical genetics.
