"Does this encyclopedia fill the editors' 5-year effort to 'aim to ensure that the breadth of the work has not compromised the depth of the articles, and ...that readers will be able to find accurate and up-to-date information on all major topics of genetics?' I am convinced it does and I am sure all those involved in genetics from the laboratory to the bedsides will find this an extremely valuable reference work."-NEUROMUSCULAR DISORDERS (January 2003) "...a beautifully produced major work of reference which will be valued by all involved in genetics for many years to come." -NEUROMUSCULAR DISORDERS (January 2003) "...unrivaled and provides a unique resource for those working in any aspect of genetics from basic research to clinical genetics. In a rapidly changing field the editors and authors have done an outstanding and commendable job. This is a reference that every library should own." —DOODY'S NOTES (2002)
