|Human Malformations and Related Anomalies (2 Vol. Set)
Lowest new price: $104.54
Lowest used price: $28.00
List price: $309.75
Fifty-two authorities have collaborated to produce Human Malformations, a new reference work on birth defects. The coverage is encyclopedic in scope, including all significant human anomalies. Written for physicians and surgeons who evaluate and treat infants and children with birth defects, this work will also serve as a useful resource to all students of human development. This work is divided into two volumes. Volume I contains 15 chapters dealing with the evaluation and understanding of birth defects. Contributors from embryology, experimental teratology, anthropology, genetics, and the medical specialties combine to give a broad perspective. The history of concepts about malformations is discussed, as well as contemporary principles and practice. Volume II (37 chapters) gives detailed accounts of human anomalies arranged by anatomical systems. Each section has the same well-organized format, permitting the reader to easily find information on the incidence, diagnosis, pathogenesis, and causes of human anomalies. The occurrence of each anomaly in various associations and syndromes is documented, often in table form. Each chapter concludes with the natural history, approaches to treatment, and prevention strategies. These two volumes are generously illustrated with 850 photographs, anatomical drawings, and radiographs. Over 8,000 references are cited to permit the reader ready access to the sources of information used to produce this text. Together, the text, illustrations, and bibliographics provide readers with a uniquely valuable and comprehensive resource on human birth defects.

|Oxford Desk Reference Clinical Genetics (Oxford Desk Reference Series)
Lowest new price: $100.72
Lowest used price: $35.99
List price: $120.00
Author: Jane A. Hurst
This important new book provides a useful, easy-to-use guide to the clinical consultation in genetics. It covers the process of diagnosis, investigation, management, and counselling for patients. The authors have used their experience to devise a practical clinical approach to many common genetic referrals, both out-patient and ward-based. The most common Mendelian disorders, chromosomal disorders, congenital anomalies and syndromes are covered. In addition there are chapters on familial cancer and pregnancy-related topics such as fetal anomalies, teratogens, prenatal and pre-implantation diagnosis. The book also provides information on the less common situations, where management is particularly complex, or important genetic concepts are illustrated.
Most of the topics fit onto a double-page spread ensuring that the book is an accessible, quick reference for the clinic or hospital consultation. Where available, diagnostic criteria for specific conditions are included as well as contact details for support groups. The book is well-illustrated and has an up-to-date bibliography and glossaries of terms used in genetics and dysmorphology. This accessible book is designed for use by consultants and trainees in clinical genetics, genetic counsellors and paediatricians, particularly those working in paediatric neurology, neonatology or child development.
|Chromosome Abnormalities and Genetic Counseling (Oxford Monographs on Medical Genetics)
Lowest new price: $45.80
Lowest used price: $9.00
List price: $79.99
Author: R. J. McKinlay Gardner
Chromosomal abnormalities can cause disability in children, and reproductive difficulty in parents. Many parents and couples seek genetic counseling in order to learn why they, or a relative, may have had a child with a particular collection of medical problems and/or intellectual disability. There may have been a history of multiple miscarriage, or infertility. They may want to know the outlook for a pregnancy, and what the risks might be. These and other questions concerning chromosome abnormalities are addressed in this standard text, which will be of interest to genetic counselors, medical geneticists, pediatricians and obstetricians, infertility specialists, and laboratory cytogeneticists.
This third edition has been thorougly updated, and is richly illustrated and fully referenced. New chapters have been written on preimplantation diagnosis and on reproductive risks due to environmental agents. The practical applications of recent advances in molecular cytogentics are noted. The book will give counselors the information that will enable them to help concerned parents accommodate to their particular "chromosomal situation", and to determine what may be, for them, the best course of action.
|Williams-Beuren Syndrome: Research, Evaluation, and Treatment
Lowest new price: $72.50
Lowest used price: $44.39
List price: $83.00
Brand: Brand: Johns Hopkins University Press
Williams-Beuren syndrome (WBS) is a genetic condition characterized by low IQ, cardiovascular malformations, dysmorphic facial features, and a striking pattern of behaviors, weaknesses, and strengths, such as musical and verbal abilities, extraordinary friendliness, empathy, and social grace. Because the typical psychological and cognitive profile is unique, examination of this syndrome sheds light on how the human brain is organized and how different aspects of cognition and behavior arise.
Williams-Beuren Syndrome offers concise, comprehensive coverage of WBS research and its clinical implications, including its genetics and molecular biology, neurobiological and behavioral traits, and medical problems and their management. Each chapter emphasizes how research can be applied to clinical practice.
The expertise of the volume editors ranges from pioneering research to personal experience: Colleen Morris played a key role in the breakthrough discovery of the missing elastin gene in patients with WBS; Howard Lenhoff is a biologist, an expert on WBS and musical pitch, and the parent of a WBS musical savant; Paul Wang is a pediatrician and cognitive researcher who works in the WBS community.
Researchers and clinicians in genetics, pediatrics, and psychiatry/psychology will find in this volume a wealth of current information on WBS, as well as valuable insights into future research possibilities.

Author: Mark A. Jobling
Human Evolutionary Genetics is a groundbreaking text which for the first time brings together molecular genetics and genomics to the study of the origins and movements of human populations.
Starting with an overview of molecular genomics for the non-specialist (which can be a useful review for those with a more genetic background), the book shows how data from the post-genomic era can be used to examine human origins and the human colonisation of the planet, richly illustrated with genetic trees and global maps. For the first time in a textbook, the authors outline how genetic data and the understanding of our origins which emerges, can be applied to contemporary population analyses, including genealogies, forensics and medicine.
